MPA 2012 Rising Tide Awards Dinner

Please Join Maine People's Alliance at our Annual Rising Tide Dinner as we celebrate our 30th anniversary! We are very excited to announce that this year's dinner will feature Congressman Barney Frank!


Barney Frank represents the Fourth Congressional District of Massachusetts, and is also the Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee. Last year, he helped pass the "Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act," a new law that the Washington Post has called "the most sweeping overhaul of the nation's financial regulatory system since the Great Depression."

Barney Frank is considered the most prominent gay politician in the United States. In 1987 he came out as gay, becoming the first member of Congress to do so voluntarily. On November 28, 2011, Frank announced that he would retire from the Congress at the conclusion of his term in 2013. On January 26, 2012 it was announced in The Hill that Frank would marry his partner James Ready, a Mainer.

We will also be presenting awards to several great volunteers and community leaders. To be announced soon!
