Recently the Maine Association of Interdependent Neighborhoods (MAIN) presented Christine B. Hastedt with their “Outstanding Community Dedication Award.”
For over thirty five years Chris has been advocating for low-income Mainers. After being with Pine Tree Legal for many years Chris has continued her work with Maine Equal Justice Partners working as a Public Policy Director fighting for rights and economic justice for people and families with low income as well as working to find solutions to end poverty.
Chris is loved by all who have the opportunity to know her. She is admired for being one of the driving forces behind public policies in Maine. She can be found spending long hours at the State House or office working to bring positive change to programs affecting the poor. In recent times she has spent much of her energy fighting to keep harmful cuts from devastating the lives of those most in need.
For this and more MAIN is pleased to recognized Chris as one of their recipients.
