    Description:

    Are you a teacher or school worker in Maine? Join Maine DSA for a social hour / working group for educators! We'll be meeting over zoom to connect, share stories, and find some solidarity during this COVID era.

    A light agenda for this call: We will be continuing our conversation from last month and identifying goals for our group.

    This event is free and open to all, please invite your fellow teachers!

    (Bonus Important Action Items to note before our call):

    The Maine Education Association is organizing against
    the decision by the University of Maine System where they decided to cut the health care benefits for
    retirees. This change will impact nearly 3,000
    retirees in Maine. Full information from the MEA here.

Open to Maine DSA members, licensed therapist Craig C. and peer support specialist Danny K. will facilitate a conversation focused not on clinical diagnoses, but rather on how we can sustain ourselves in struggle.
