Welcome to Beacon

Beacon is a website and podcast created by the Maine People’s Alliance to highlight the experiences of everyday Mainers, share information about the political and policy processes that affect Maine people and promote a progressive worldview based on community, fairness and investing in the future.

We’re proud to be able to feature contributions from smart Mainers from across the state, including our first regular columnist: Professor Ron Schmidt. If you’re interested in contributing to the site, please drop us a line.
