Edmund S. Muskie Access to Justice Award
When we started Coffee By Design in 1994 we had two things in mind. First was to work hard and grow our business. Next was to support Portland, Maine’s arts and social change communities. As timed passed and Portland experienced immense change our business expanded and so did our passion for this city, and for everyone in our community. All of the hard work and commitment to our neighbors has led to wonderful connections and friendships, even in places as far-flung as Burundi. Many of these friends recently joined us for an extraordinary evening of community, inspiration and hope— Mary Allen was presented the 2018 Hon. Edmund S. Muskie Access to Justice Award. Fortunately our good friend Reggie Groff was there, camera in hand. We hope you will watch Mary Allen’s acceptance of this esteemed award.
