Welcoming New Asylum Seekers to Bath: A Public Meeting to Learn about Newcomers to Our Community

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the Midcoast New Mainers Group to learn about the asylum seeker families who recently moved to Bath. We’ll share information about why African families fled their home countries and traveled to Maine to restart their lives. We will also give a brief overview of the communication, cultural and other challenges these families face and talk about volunteer opportunities to help these newcomers to Bath.  The conversation will be led by Martha Stein, Executive Director of Hope Acts, Portland and Carol Kalajainen, Mid Coast New Mainers Group (MCNMG) Steering group. The Midcoast New Mainers Group is an all-volunteer group of neighbors who have assisted immigrants to the southern midcoast for the past several years. We welcome your questions and involvement.
