Hannaford Hall, Abromson Center, USM

Portland, ME

Together, we will ensure Portland’s independence. Our community, like many others, is struggling with an influx of national and multinational corporations displacing local businesses and the consequences of rapidly rising rents. Portland Buy Local is hosting a forum to address these issues.
The goal of the forum is to combat these issues as a community, through the input of city and community leaders. In collaboration with expert guest speakers, Portland Buy Local is working on moving forward with policy that will support Portland’s local economy. Help collectively decide how we want our city to grow.
