Assisting Migrant Workers in Maine

January 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST

The Rockland Public Library will host Ian Yaffe, Executive Director of Mano en Mano on Thursday, January 5 at 6:00 p.m.  Mano en Mano / Hand in Hand  is a non-profit organization  that serves immigrant and farmworker communities in Downeast Maine. In the past few years, it has continued to provide much-needed social services and advocacy for its constituency, built Maine’s first affordable housing project for farmworkers, and run educational programs across Washington County for migrant students (including, most recently, a summer program called the Blueberry Harvest School which served 130 students in 2013). This event is free and open to all.

This presentation is hosted by the Rockland Public Library and offered as a free community event in anticipation of the 30th Annual Camden Conference -Refugees and Global Migration: Humanity’s Crisis, February 17-19, 2017. The 30th Anniversary Camden Conference Community Events Series is supported in part by the Maine Humanities Council.
