PORTLAND | A diverse group of Maine Seeds met with Maine Governor Paul LePage at the Augusta Statehouse on January 14. The meeting with Gov. LePage was part of the cross-generational leadership forum connecting current and future leaders in Maine.
Gov. LePage questioned the six Seeds about their community work and the Seeds used the opportunity to share their concerns over how the state responds to Maine’s changing demographics.
The Seeds engaged the governor with confidence, speaking eloquently about current immigrant and refugee issues and addressing some of the misconceptions about Maine’s growing Somali, Iraqi and Latino populations.
The Seeds also spoke about how Seeds of Peace has influenced their lives.
