Rise Up Convention

We look forward to seeing everyone who registered for the Rise Up Convention and meeting with thousands of activists nationwide fighting the Trump agenda. 

If you would like to travel to DC with other Progressive Maryland members, we are meeting at the Silver Spring Metro Plaza (just outside the metro itself) at 3:30 PM on Sunday where we will then take the Red Line into DC. Regardless how you plan to travel, please plan to meet in the hotel lobby no later than 5pm.
