The end of 2018 is quickly approaching and it has been a tremendous year. Following the results of the 2018 elections we are inviting progressives from across the state to join together and discuss the next steps for our movement.On Saturday December 29th at 11am, we will be convening a Progressive Maryland statewide meeting to celebrate our victories, discuss our challenges, and to prepare our next steps.
In 2018 Progressive Maryland members have been on the front-lines of building a progressive electoral force in our state. Together we contributed to not only a powerful blue wave in the general election, but also a major progressive wave during the primary season which swept our state. We did this with an amazing grassroots ground game that helped expand the electorate and organize our base. Here’s some of what we accomplished:

Altogether, 74 of PM’s endorsed candidates will be taking office in 2019, as a clear majority of our endorsed candidates won their races! Now we need to translate those electoral victories into pro-working family legislation.That means enacting a $15 minimum wage that increases with inflation, a guaranteed right to health-care, and an end to mass incarceration. Together we will make sure that Democrats take on corporate power in Maryland on behalf of our state’s multi-racial working class. Join us as we chart out the next chapter of making Maryland the most progressive state in the nation.
