Civics Night at the Soda Fountain
About this Giving Circle
We are a group of neighbors who began meeting in February of 2017 at our local soda fountain with the sole mission of becoming more informed citizens. Civics Night at the Soda Fountain has had the honor of sitting roundtable with an array of dynamic guest speakers who were also eager for civic engagement with us. After a year of information gathering our group, in partnership with the Future Now Fund (co-founded by former New York State Senator, Daniel Squadron) has decided to pivot into action to become a mighty giving circle to support 2018 mid-term candidates that have a solid chance of flipping states from red to blue. One thing we learned in the year of Civics Nights is that state elections matter. And now, more than ever.
Maine has refused to expand voting access, blocked efforts to make higher education more affordable and slow-walked efforts to strengthen water testing in schools and daycares.
