MRN is based on the model of the Oregon Rural Organizing Project, which has been successfully organizing rural Oregon for the last six years.
The February 10th election swept away all doubt about where the need for education and organization lies in Maine. Rural areas are recognized both locally and nationally as places with the most need for education about homophobia. Our mission is to help create ways for people to find each other, create safe environments in order to organize locally.
MRN is committed to the decentralization and autonomy of each group, while creating a network to link the LGBT community across Maine. MRN is committed to promoting the visibility of LGBT people in Maine while at the same time broadening our political base by working in coalition with others for social justice.
