    Progressive Prince George's

    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:

    Education

    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.

    You can so get more info at our coalition website 

    To volunteer contact Angum@ProgressiveMaryland.org

    Our members have also been active in our statewide campaigns on issues including police reform, raising the minimum wage, paid sick and family leave, and fair scheduling practices for workers.

  • Rep. Andy Harris MUST VOTE NO to healthcare cuts - and YES to Reauthorize CHIP!

    37 signatures

    The Eastern Shore’s Rep. Andy Harris, a physician, is supposed to carry the admonition “first do no harm” everywhere he goes. When he goes back to the House of Representatives he should suit action to those words and vote to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program with no cuts in funding.

    Here at the Maryland for Guaranteed Healthcare campaign and Progressive Maryland, we are horrified by the 23 million people tossed off health care by the (stalled) US House version of a substitute for the Affordable Care Act. CHIP is an important adjunct to Medicaid, which serves 37 million children. The Kaiser Family Foundation depicts four in ten children’s medical care depending on Medicaid and CHIP. According to Medicaid.gov, "as of May 2017, Maryland has enrolled 1,296,694 individuals in Medicaid and CHIP — a net increase of 51.43% since the first Marketplace Open Enrollment Period and related Medicaid program changes in October 2013."

    [More information on CHIP can be found here]

    Tell Andy Harris that his Congressional District 1 constituents, and people throughout Maryland, want CHIP reauthorized with NO funding cuts in September.

    Andy Harris voted to reauthorize CHIP in 2015 the last time re-authorization was on the line. Nothing has changed except Trump’s destabilizing threats to the well-being of millions and an even more dangerous medical care landscape for hard-working low-income families for whom Medicaid is a lifeline. 

     

    Their children shouldn’t suffer. Andy Harris shouldn’t go along with the Trump-Ryan plan to loot our basic protections so as to cut taxes for millionaires. 

    Reauthorize CHIP with FULL funding. Sign to tell him that!

I'm a proud mom and resident of PG County. I make a lot of noise about the issues I care about -- as I think we all should. Also love all kinds of music!
