Progressive Maryland is calling for Harford County Delegate Mary Ann Lisanti to resign or be expelled following both an allegation of racist speech and her tone deaf statements after the revelation of the original incident.
Lisanti has lost her ability to credibly represent the people of her district and make policy for all Marylanders. Anyone who disrespects African Americans -- as she clearly does -- has no business serving in the Maryland General Assembly.
Issues pending before the Maryland General Assembly have serious implications for people of color. Based on her comments, Lisanti shouldn’t vote on these measures.117 signaturesAdd signature
Progressive Maryland issued a call to the Angela Alsobrooks campaign to cease accepting contributions from developers, their attorneys, and their lobbyists. The organization is also demanding that the Alsobrooks campaign return any contributions she has already accepted by May 30th 2018. Progressive Maryland is giving the Alsobrooks campaign three days to issue a response to this request. Sign our petition below to tell Angela Alsobrooks that Prince Georgians are tired of large corporations and developers thinking they can buy elections in our County.
Progressive Prince George's brings together residents and activists from all over the county to collaborate for a better quality of life for all Prince Georgians. As a member-driven, community-based organization, we provide access to training and tools to empower all of our members to take on the issues they care about in their neighborhoods.
Progressive Prince George's members take on a variety of issues. Our current campaigns and volunteer led issue areas include:
Criminal Justice Reform
Immigrant Rights and Protection
Fair Elections - On all levels of government there is a a feeling that our elected officials are not solely accountable to the people who voted them into office. Our elected representatives are also accountable to wealthy donors and special interests that fund their campaigns. Progressive Prince George's is working to ensure everyday people have a bigger voice in our elections. We are urging the county council to introduce, support, and pass legislation that will create a small donor matching program. It will give candidates an opportunity to reject big donor, special interest money and amplify the voice of everyday residents through a tiered donation matching system.

Organizing Co-Op - Progressive Maryland launched a 75-day campaign to get 200 or more residents to pledge $20-30 per month to hire a full-time organizer. Residents will form a steering committee and decide which issues they want to work on. The organizer will work diligently to train and develop leaders within the county and organize people around the co-op’s core issues to make a greater impact in Prince George’s.
