Maine Center for Economic Policy will participate in the 40th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Observance in association with the NAACP in Maine. To protect attendees’ health, this year’s event is a virtual teach-in and call to action honoring Dr. King’s life and legacy.

This year’s celebration offers a full day of opportunities to learn, care, share, and take action on racial justice issues across Maine. MECEP’s economic policy analyst James Myall will host a session titled “Building Black Worker Power: Equity in the Workplace,” where he will share research on how state policy can create more equitable workplaces for Black Mainers, and a stronger economy for all of us.

The day’s schedule features 20 sessions to choose from. Visit to register for the day’s events. Tickets are available on a sliding scale from free to $100.
