Portland Stage supports the city’s decision to move its Health and Human Services to 39 Forest Avenue. In April, we had the opportunity to meet with Portland’s Mayor Kate Snyder and Councilor Mark Dion, who sits on the committee that was reviewing the move and the HHS leadership team. Based on our collaborative conversations at that time, Portland Stage’s Board of Directors voiced their support for the project.
We look forward to working with the HHS leadership team to ensure that everyone in our community feels welcome on our block. Portland Stage wants Portland to be not only a leading cultural center but also a leader in recognizing the dignity and worth of every individual in our community. We look forward to building synergies between our organizations.
