Students advocate for legal noncitizens lead to letter writing and to national conference

Based on their advocacy for public assistance to legal non-citizens, two Bates College sophomores, Meghan Lynch of Scarborough, Maine, and Ali Rabideau of Natick, Massachusetts, are among 55 student leaders and activists to participate in the Debating for Democracy National Conference.

Not attending but just involved in this issue is Eva Goldstin of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, who was part of the term that wrote to Maine Governor Paul LePage urging that he reconsider his stance on public assistance to legal noncitizens.
