Each year at the HOPE Festival we come together to affirm and celebrate diverse efforts for social change happening across Maine. Coordinated by the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine and supported by the University of Maine Peace and Reconciliation Studies program, the HOPE Festival brings together around 70 progressive organizations working on building peace, social justice, and a sustainable environment. The annual HOPE Festival offers these groups the chance to share information about their work and network with others. In addition to enjoying local food and a family area, the public gets a chance to learn how they can become involved in social justice efforts in their community.

Power of Song

Pete Seeger helped introduce America to its own musical heritage, devoting his life to using the power of song as a force for social change. With his deeply-held beliefs, Seeger went from the top of the pop charts to the top of the blacklist and was banned from American commercial television for more than 17 years. This first and only authorized biography of Seeger premiered on PBS in 2008. [http://www.pbs.org/video/american-masters-pete-seeger-power-song/]
