  • Demand Governor Hogan, Hold a Public Townhall to Reveal His Views on Trump's policies

    The letter below written by Nienke Grossman was sent to Governor Larry Hogan on February 3rd, and posted in the Baltimore Sun. Since then, hundreds of Marylanders have signed on, demanding that Governor Hogan tell us where he stands on policies of the Trump administration as they relate to our state and its people. Read it, then sign on below.

    Dear Governor Hogan:

    We are Maryland voters who care deeply about the present and future of our state. We hail from all over Maryland, and we have made thousands of phone calls to your office in the last several weeks seeking your views on a wide range of issues. We are still waiting for your answers.

    As you know, hundreds of thousands of Marylanders may lose their health care and many more risk the loss of important benefits, such as the elimination of lifetime maximums, as a result of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.  We are unable to support refugees fleeing death and destruction as a result of the president’s action, and the federal government is threatening to deputize our local law enforcement for the purposes of enforcing immigration law rather than our own criminal laws and to take away funding from sanctuary cities. Our Jewish Community Centers, mosques, churches and public schools have become targets of hateful speech and acts. Also, recent news reports suggest that the new administration may reduce funds for women’s health care and domestic violence shelters, which provide care and refuge to the most vulnerable among us.

    You are our governor. We voted you into office, yet we feel our concerns are being ignored. We deserve to know how you propose to address these issues. What are you going to do about the impending health care crisis in Maryland? What are you doing to help ensure that Maryland continues to be a welcoming place for immigrants and people fleeing from violence and persecution? What do you propose to keep our houses of worship and our schools safe from hate? What do you propose to ensure access to basic women’s health care services and to minimize the harm to victims of domestic violence in the wake of reduced federal funding to shelters?

    Because our phone calls have gone unheeded and many of our Facebook posts have been deleted and blocked, we request that you announce and hold an open town hall meeting to share with us your concrete policy proposals on health care coverage, your views on immigration, and how you will show leadership in response to the uptick in hateful acts in our state and the potential defunding of domestic violence shelters and resources.

    We want to work with you to make Maryland the best state that it can possibly be and to help Maryland rise to the challenges that it will face in the years to come. We need to know where you stand, and we want you to know that we are motivated, we are concerned, and we are not going away.

    Sign the petition below to say no to Donald Trump appearing at Stephen Decatur High in Maryland!

    861 signatures

    We the undersigned agree that a public school is no place for the kinds of hateful and intolerant rhetoric Donald Trump's campaign promotes. We also agree that bringing Donald Trump's divisive message to Stephen Decatur fosters an environment of danger and controversy that will disrupt the learning process. 

    Allowing Trump to use Stephen Decatur High School as a tool to broadcast his divisive message stands against the principles Stephen Decatur High School expects it's students, teachers, and staff to adhere to every day. 

    Sign our petition below to ask that Wednesday's planned rally with Donald Trump be canceled. Let's let Donald Trump take his bigoted message elsewhere. Let's show that that his message is not welcome here.

    No Trump in MD

    On March 11th in Chicago, the people of that city made a clear statement that they would not allow the rhetoric of hatred and bigotry espoused by the Trump campaign to go unanswered. Thousands of people came together to successfully shut down Trump's scheduled rally in their city. If there were similar efforts in every area where he attempted to hold one of his large rallies we could shut down more of his events. Trump's rallies are a key to his campaign. He has no access to voter data or ability to organize volunteers and voters without them. If we shut them down, then we can make progress to shutting his campaign down.

    Progressive Maryland is therefore calling to the people of our state to help ensure that Trump never stands behind a podium in our state during this election cycle. If there is a Trump rally scheduled in Maryland, or even a nearby jurisdiction, we are calling for people to peacefully protest and disrupt the event in such a way that it is impossible for it to move forward. We hope that our allies and in other states will follow with a similar call to the people of their states, so that Trump's rallies are effectively shut down, and his primary mechanism of organizing is permanently disrupted.

    Sign up below if you will join us in stopping Trump's campaign from organizing a rally in Maryland!

     

    After you sign up, go on to the next page to join us in ensuring that you will help get out the vote in order to prevent Donald Trump's bigotry from becoming policy in our country.
