Please join us immediately after the July 13th Council on Foundations webinar (register here) to debrief what you heard with Maine colleagues. MPC will create a space for you to connect with peers to share how you've been responding to this ruling and what practice shifts you've been considering based on the ruling. We will also use this space to gather insight on what else you'd like to know about this so that we can gather appropriate resources.
