The Maine Holocaust education bill passed through the House but “under the hammer” meaning no recorded vote was taken and now it goes back to the Senate on Monday. So, your help is needed once again! PLEASE call/email your state senator and ask him/her to support LD 1050. The bill will then go back to the House and one more time to the Senate. They need to know how serious we are about this law. Time is of the essence! If this bill times out this legislative session we will have to start from scratch next year!! Please act now! Appreciate your support! Spread the word! Share!
Many thanks to Sharon Yesner and United Methodist Communities at Pitman for inviting 94 Maidens author Rhonda Fink-Whitman to come speak to the residents and guests about her book and her mission to mandate Holocaust education in all 50 states! It was a fabulous event chock full of good news and the very latest updates!
Thanks to the World Jewish Congress for creating this ever-expanding beautiful map! We’ll have to update it by the end of the month, adding Texas and hopefully Maine as well! 94 Maidens is proud to be leading the charge! #Mandate #Holocaust #Education

Do you live in Maine?
Maine’s Holocaust education bill (LD 1050) has made it through Senate committee (a vote of 34-0!) Next stop is the House where it will most likely encounter some opposition. If you live in Maine PLEASE email your local representative and ask them to support the bill! They may vote TOMORROW!
