Program areas at MPA

Statewide & local community organizing - worked to advance grassroots campaigns to: win paid sick days for working people in Maine; advance immigrant rights; work towards fair taxes; expand Maine's medicaid program; reduce the influence of special interest money in Maine politics; support policies that allow Maine seniors to age with dignity in their homes; address the opioid epidemic; and demonstrate the broad public support for protection of programs like social security, medicare, and the affordable care act, among others. We are known for our ability to do grassroots organizing and education that reaches more than 100,000 mainers each year with direct personal contact and quality leadership development work.

Progressive coalition services: as part of its overall organizing and educational mission, mpa offers fiscal agent service for appropriate partners and coalitions with shared missions and goals. In 2018 this included Maine votes, a state-based collaborative campaign and political activity table built to establish collective action around a common agenda--by improving long-term coordination via data, targeting, and related activity.

Door canvass - public outreach and education: canvass staff contacts households in Maine by visiting homes in the portland, bangor, and lewiston areas to distribute issue-oriented information, recruit members, and solicit contributions.
