HOW DID THIS GROUP GET STARTED?
Suit Up Maine originated as a closed Facebook group that served as a regional offshoot of Pantsuit Nation shortly before the 2016 election. When Pantsuit Nation sought non-profit status, restricting chapters in the forms of action they could take, we ended our affiliation and changed our name to Suit Up Maine Action Network, to make it clear that we are an independent, action-oriented group. We later shortened our name to Suit Up Maine, or SUM. Karin Leuthy and Kelli Whitlock Burton are SUM’s current co-leaders. They are joined by a talented team of administrators and working group leaders from all across Maine.
