Temporarily Suspended: The Heart of the Midcoast: Welcoming New Americans

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Camden Public Library

55 Main Street
Camden, ME 04843 United States

The Camden Public Library will be closed through Tuesday, March 31. We will provide the latest updates on when programs will resume and in what capacity on our website and Facebook page. Thanks.

New Americans in our home town? Members of Camden’s New Mainers Coastal Task Force (NMCTF) will host an informative evening to discuss this exciting new possibility.

The NMCTF envisions residents of Camden and nearby communities coming together to welcome and assist refugees, asylum seekers, and other immigrants who seek to relocate to our region.

The task force, which has been meeting for approximately six months, is fortunate to include several key Town of Camden administrative staff members, as well as individuals knowledgeable about the recent uptick in asylum seekers to Portland, Brunswick, Lewiston, and surrounding cities and towns. A number of NMCTF members have worked directly with New Americans and cultural integration, and all are very eager to ready our own community to welcome newcomers who are in search of a conducive place to live.

The New Mainers Coastal Task Force wants to share its preliminary work and begin a conversation with the greater community. Please come and join the conversation.  All are welcome!
