Task Forces & Chapter Updates:

Healthcare For All:

On the national level, People’s Action launched a grassroots Care Over Cost campaign this year! Read more about it in the In These Times article about wrongful denials of claims by insurance companies like Elevance. We’re getting ready for the 2023 state legislative session where we’ll be working to lower Rx prices at the state level, to end the burden of Medical Debt and to expand healthcare services for Marylanders in need. We need more folks to take part in this critical campaign to fight corporate greed in our healthcare system. To join us, contact Patty.

 

Campaign For Justice and Ending the War on Drugs:

Justice is on the ballot this year! We’ve been door knocking and phone banking voters to urge a FOR vote on Question 4 to legalize cannabis. Punitive marijuana laws fueled mass incarceration and widespread racist policing practices.Legalization has many benefits, including redirecting public resources spent on thousands of arrests to community needs and social services. 

 

If you’re interested in joining our efforts, please contact Kurt or Dev.

State and National News:

 

People are voting tomorrow all over the country, every state – “the great mystery of democracy” as a 20th-century political sage called it will actually happen and the polls will be history, right or wrong. The era of early voting including mail-in has muddled that sense of one-day-settles-all. Here is the morning tally from Pluribus News: More than 40.5 million Americans have voted already this year, according to University of Florida political scientist Michael McDonald’s U.S. Elections Project. In the 23 states where voters register by party, Democrats hold a 43%-34% turnout edge.

 

Also in News You Can Use this week: Election disruption attempts in Maryland and some other states; Congress's "lame duck" session; Wes Moore gets ink; a West Virginia refugee crisis here? Read on.

 

Get the details on all these pressing topics in News You Can Use, our blog of Maryland and national progressive concerns. If you need an incentive to vote progressive, look no further.

Progressive Maryland BlogSpace:
