Resource Center

Empowering Mainers to organize for social change

Who We Are

Maine People’s Resource Center (MPRC) was founded in 1984 by leaders of Maine People’s Alliance (MPA), with whom we partner in advancing local, statewide and national campaigns for progressive social change.

Over the past nearly-four decades, MPRC has recruited and trained thousands of grassroots leaders, registered tens of thousands of new voters, and educated hundreds of thousands of Mainers about legislative and ballot initiatives and the importance of voting to make their voices heard.

What We Do

MPRC's Response to COVID-19

In this time of crisis, Maine People’s Resource Center and Maine People’s Alliance have decided to dedicate organizing resources to supporting a mutual aid network, Mainers Together, in order for neighbors to connect with others in their community who may need help with challenges resulting from the COVID 19 pandemic.
