October 15, 2019, Yarmouth, What is Freedom?

October 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What does “freedom” mean to you?
Which is the most important freedom in your life?
Has your freedom ever been endangered by a different belief?
What if your idea of freedom endangers your neighbor’s? 
Do you oppose any other view of freedom?
Have you ever felt an absence of freedom?
What freedoms do you believe you’ll lose when an opposing party is in power?


These are the types of questions we hope to discuss. What are YOUR answers? Please join us.


This Make Shift Coffee House is part of a series of Make Shift Coffee Houses in Yarmouth, Maine guided by a local committee. The Committee of 12 people is co-chaired by Republican Deborah Delp and Democrat Sharon McDonnell. Here are the Committee’s goals:

  1. Help people learn new things about their neighbors.
  2. Grow enthusiasm for working with neighbors to build our community.
  3. Build capacity for talking with our neighbors about difficult topics with integrity and respect.

As with all Make Shift Coffee Houses, this is not a debate. It’s simply about UNDERSTANDING each other’s political views. Come enjoy free food, coffee, music and respectful face-to-face conversation.

All are welcome! No RSVP, registration, or tickets required. Just show up.

Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, Undecided…we want to hear from everyone!
