The start of a new school year comes with a renewed hope for a fresh start. The MEA is feeling refreshed as well and is rolling out its new look with new resources and revamped goals that truly reflect the work we do and the members we represent.
The MEA has always stood for great public schools for every Maine student, but we are so much more. We are a diverse group of professional educators, standing together to ensure that our voice, values, and priorities are heard and respected. MEA advocates for better pay, benefits, and working conditions for members. We stand up for, support, and empower members in and out of the classroom. And MEA works to ensure equity, prevent discrimination and prejudice, and advance great public schools for all educators and students across the state.
In order to stay viable, the Union needed to adjust, as we all have learned over the last year, to help more early career educators understand the importance of being Union members. With that adjustment comes a new, refreshed look!
MEA encourages you to check out the new logo and the story behind the logo and share MEA’s story with non-members.
