Get Involved

We believe our government works better when citizens take part in it. Whether you’re an experienced activist with canvassing skills, a constituent comfortable calling representatives and writing letters to the editor, or a newly engaged Mainer building a knowledge base, Suit Up Maine welcomes you. Building a government that we can all be proud of takes a lot of work, and we encourage you to join our efforts. As an all-volunteer organization, our most important resource is people like you.

 

Join a Working Group

Our working group members discuss news and policy information, determine issues that are ripe for action, and develop our calls to action (C2As). Our C2As are shared with our 5,400+ members and more than 10,000 other Mainers through partnerships with like-minded groups. Members do their work via closed Facebook groups and must be able to donate about four hours a month. Learn more about the groups below and email suitupmaine@gmail.com if you’d like to join us.

Health Care, Reproductive Rights & Disability Rights

Prevention of Gun Violence & Violence Against Women

Trump Administration & Federal Government

Environmental Issues

Media & Free Speech

Education

Take Action With Us

Our calls to action (C2As) are made by and for Mainers, and cover state and national issues. We curate issues and information from a range of sources, and boil it all down into easily digestible nuggets of knowledge paired with simple actions. Even if all you have time to do is read them, you’re helping to build a more informed electorate! Find current C2As on our Homepage and previous ones in the Archive.

Join Our Letter to the Editor Project

Letters to the Editor are a powerful tool for sharing information with our neighbors and letting legislators know what their constituents care about. Our Letters to the Editor Project helps constituents who have something to say but don’t know where to start. If you have writing and editing skills that you’d like to lend to this project, please join us! For help with a Letter to the Editor or to join the project, email lteproject17@gmail.com.

Join Our Social Media Team

We’re growing our presence on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. If one or all of these platforms are your bag, consider putting those skills to use as a part of our team. Email us at suitupmaine@gmail.com.
