I think we could all stand to hear a little positivity...in Yarmouth, there's a whole day of it.

 

Well, 2 hours of hope.

The Day of Hope features seven speakers to share 15-20 minute 'TED-Style' stories about hope from their jobs and lives, where they find it and how they use it to make a positive impact in Maine.

Speakers include:

  • Ethan Strimling (Portland Mayor)
  • Leslie Silverstein (Director of Maine Immigration Lawyers)
  • Eliot Cutler (former Gubernatorial candidate)
  • Cathy Breen (Senator Cathy Breen serves on the Joint Standing Committee on Appropriations and Financial Affairs)
  • Jess Knox (Jess Knox is a entrepreneurship ecosystem builder)
  • Spencer Albee (musician)
  • Matthew Gagnon (CEO of Maine Heritage Policy Center)

The Day of Hope is at the Yarmouth High School Performing Arts Center in Yarmouth.
