Franco Americans in Maine politics and voting
October 27 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The French in Maine have long played an extremely important role in the politics of the Pine Tree State. In this election year, we are hosting a panel presentation with three prominent voices from the Franco community that aims to highlight the relevance of Franco Americans in Maine politics and voting: Severin Beliveau will speak about the history of Franco Americans in Maine politics, James Myall will explore the history of disenfranchisement in Maine, and Rhea Côté Robbins will examine the Franco American suffragist movement.
