Game Changer: Emily Cain


Why.jpg As the granddaughter of two World War II veterans, the niece of a Vietnam veteran, and the cousin of Afghanistan War veterans, Emily knows the sacrifice our nation’s service members and their families make to protect our country. As the daughter of an educator and graduate of the University of Maine, Emily also knows first-hand the vital role public schools, colleges, and universities play for Maine’s families and our economic future. And as the youngest woman to ever serve as Maine’s House Minority Leader, Emily knows the importance of breaking down barriers for Maine's women and families.

Emily sponsored several major pieces of legislation aimed at combating domestic violence in Maine, where half of the murder rate is the result of domestic violence.

Emily is a member of the Maine Education Association and University of Maine Professional Staff Association.

Emily has a 100% rating from the AFL-CIO as a state legislator and has been proud to earn the endorsements of Maine’s labor unions in every one of her past five state legislative elections.
