The Connecting Across Cultures “New Mainers” series, with the Camden Public Library, continues Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to hear from Jennifer Sporzynski, senior vice president of workforce and business development at Coastal Enterprises, Inc., in an online presentation about immigration and Maine’s economy. Sporzynski will explain how foreign-born Mainers are adding to the vibrancy of the Pine Tree economy, where they can do more, what’s standing in the way, and how to boost their contributions.

The event is the latest in a series from Connecting Across Cultures, a volunteer-based immigrant-support network that assists new Mainers in the Midcoast area, with members located in Camden, Rockland, Rockport, and Thomaston. CEI, a community development financial institution headquartered in Brunswick, helps to create jobs, environmentally sustainable enterprises, and prosperity in Maine and rural regions throughout the U.S.
