Progressive Maryland is working to assist those in need and to push for public policies and responses that will aid our state and local governments along with our communities. Since it’s an important election year, we are also educating and mobilizing voters in order to help advance local progressive candidates and policies. Join Marylanders United across the state TODAY.

Dear Marylanders:
We hope that you are continuing to stay safe and healthy. On our third weekly COVID response call this afternoon (5:30 to 7 PM), we will review changes to the voting system for the upcoming elections. We’ll also discuss our mutual aid efforts and how you can get involved in or start one of our local COVID response groups in your area. Progressive Maryland is working to assist those in need and to push for public policies and responses that will aid our state and local governments along with our communities. Since it’s an important election year, we are also educating and mobilizing voters in order to help advance local progressive candidates and policies. 
Why do we focus on these areas? We know there is much more to work on, and we’ll be doing that as we continue to connect across the state. But it’s just a few days more than a month until our (already delayed) primary election June 2, and Marylanders need to get good at exercising this critical franchise right under these most unusual circumstances.
And as we extend our mutual aid network we will fill in the gaps between the new and unfamiliar practice of living online and the genuine closeness-in-isolation we want to have so as to make sure our neighbors and community are finding ways to positively manage our lives during the COVID health and economic crisis.
Join us TODAY at 5:30 PM for this important community conversation and meet some of our endorsed candidates! Click here to RSVP.pm_folks_with_banner.jpg
