Blue Hill Public Issues Forum: 'Invisible Americans' Among Us? - CANCELLED

NatureLinks students Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 1/9/2019
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 The Blue Hill Public Library is starting a new monthly series of discussions on issues affecting our community, the state and the world: the “Blue Hill Public Issues Forum.” The series will be organized and moderated by retired history professor, Dr. Gregory Bush, with the goal of stimulating in-person civic dialogue about important but sometimes overlooked issues on the Blue Hill peninsula, in Maine and across the nation. Events will be streamed online via Facebook, with additional pre-event information and a post-event blog provided at www.sites.google.com/view/bluehillforum.

The first event in this series will be on Wednesday, January 9 at 6:30 PM, a panel discussion on the topic 'Invisible Americans' Among Us?: The Rights and Needs of Young Adults with Intellectual Disabilities.” Panelists will include Libby Stone-Sterling, Director of Maine Vocational Rehabilitation; Janice M. Davis, M.A, Hancock County Vocational Rehabilitation Representative; and Annie Sargent, Director of Ellsworth Adult Education. The forum will focus on current available programs and the various challenges having to do with continuing education, job training, and government benefits for young adults with developmental disabilities.

This event is sponsored by the library, and is free and open to everyone. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
