Maine Action Coalition
The Maine Action Coalition for People with disabilities, is a local group of handicapped and abled-bodied citizens, dedicated to improving the quality of life for the physically and mentally challenged. Among MAC's many interests are:
1. To increase public awareness of the special needs and rights of handicapped citizens.
2. To help sponsor more community activities and services for the disabled, and to raise funds for medical research and treatment.
3. To blend the hopes and ideas of our members into one stronger voice which might be better heard by our lawmakers.
Since our humble beginning in 1983, MAC has enjoyed steady growth and acceptance in our community. Our monthly meetings offer members the opportunity to gather together and share information about such common concerns as health insurance, medical treatment, and to discuss impending legislation which affect the disabled. We also meet to express personal concerns and ideas and share simple friendship.
