Activists Take it to the Streets

Please join the Maine Women’s Lobby and members of the Fair and Independent Courts Coalition during the week of December 12 in a nationwide effort to draw attention to the nomination of Judge Sam Alito to the Supreme Court and give Mainers a chance to express their concerns about his troubling record.

Allies and activists will be getting in a van and traveling throughout the state to get people talking within their communities about what his confirmation could mean for Maine people. Local media outlets will be invited to cover the campaign in different areas of the state as we talk with people and gather petition signatures in stores, coffee shops and other gathering places.

We need activists to make the trips with us as well as local contacts at each stop to be present. We also need one or two people to act as key point people to talk to the press. We will provide talking points.

This will be a particularly good opportunity for local activists to state their personal objections and thoughts on the nomination of Judge Alito. If you are interested in traveling in the van or meeting us in one of the above locations, please email organizer@mainewomen.og to sign up.
