Ben Chin is the Deputy Director of Maine People’s Alliance, where he has worked on community organizing campaigns for the last 15 years. He helped build the teams that have won wage increases for one out of three Maine workers, the first Medicaid expansion through the ballot, and the nation’s first paid time off law. He has managed electoral campaigns at the local and statewide level. After his run for mayor of Lewiston, he was named one of the “Frederick Douglass 200” for his efforts towards racial justice. His white paper for universal family care—including universal childcare and home health care for seniors and disabilities—has become a model for state and federal campaigns.
