Making the Most of Summertime

It may still be summertime in “Vacationland,” but Marsy’s Law for Maine is in full swing. Our efforts to talk with Mainers in all parts of our state about the importance of equal rights for crime victims will continue on during these final days of summer.

To date, we have met people in many Maine communities, such as Fort Fairfield in Aroostook County at the Potato Blossom Festival, in Wilton at the Blueberry Festival, and at the Bangor Fair. Coming up, we will meet more Mainers at the Skowhegan State Fair, Harbor Fest in Belfast, and we will be back in Bangor for the Folk Festival, just to name a few of the communities we will visit in the coming weeks.

Our growing coalition of Mainers keeps expanding, as does our grassroots outreach to make sure all Mainers know about Marsy’s Law for Maine. The people with whom we have talked resoundingly agree that it is time Maine remove itself as an outlier and join the 35 other states who have granted equal rights to crime victims, so crime victims in Maine finally have equal rights to those who are accused or convicted of causing them harm.

We look forward to meeting more Mainers as we press ahead and hope you will support Marsy’s Law for Maine today!
