  • Interactive Pannel: Should Mainers Take Over CMP?

    February 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    South Portland High School, 637 Highland Ave, South Portland, ME 04106, USA

    Should Mainers control our own power utility? How would it work?

    State Representative Seth Berry (D-Bowdoinham) and panelists will discuss the proposal to establish a Maine Power Delivery Authority. “Maine Power” or MPDA would replace Central Maine Power Company and Emera Maine, instead operating much like Maine’s existing consumer-owned utilities such as Kennebunk Light and Power, Madison Electric Works, or Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative.

    As Maine looks to decarbonize, experts point to the electrical grid as the foundation of our future energy needs. Berry argues that our current grid does not provide the reliable and affordable foundation we need.

  • The End of School Policing?

    March 5, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
    Hannaford Hall, 88 Bedford St, Portland Campus

    Police in schools are now commonplace but their role is often controversial. Critics see a “school to prison pipeline” in the increased number of suspensions, expulsions and arrests and the disproportionate numbers of students of color punished in schools with police. Here in Portland, concerns over body cameras and budget concerns are leading some to question the program. Alex Vitale, author of The End of Policing, is coming to USM to speak about police in schools and challenge the city of Portland and the State of Maine to consider an end of policing in schools...and in general.Vitale’s lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Chief Frank Clark of the Portland Police, Portland School Board Chair Roberto Rodriguez, and a representative from Maine Youth Justice.


    Guest Speaker: Alex Vitale, author of The End of Policing and a sociology professor at Brooklyn College.


     Discussant Panel: Chief Frank Clark of the Portland Police, Portland School Board Chair Roberto Rodriguez, and a representative from Maine Youth Justice,
