The Maryland Legislative Coalition is proud to present its first Legislative Summit aimed at political advocates interested in gaining insight into critical bills being introduced during the 2018 Maryland legislative session. The Summit, sponsored by Maryland Now, is an initiative arranged by local grass root organizations to increase voter’s breadth and depth of knowledge on important issues affecting Marylanders, including women’s rights, racial justice, voter’s rights, climate change, clean water and education.
The Summit will begin with a morning training session, conducted by Maryland Working Families, that will enlighten the audience on the Maryland legislative process and discuss best practices for influencing our elected officials. The afternoon session will introduce over twenty NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) that will present brief overviews of their legislative priorities and the bills they plan to introduce or support during the 2018 legislative period. Time will be allotted for participants to network with legislators, NGO’s and each other to acquire more information on significant legislative issues. Participants can choose to attend either the morning or afternoon sessions, or both.
Join us, our legislators, the ACLU, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, Common Cause Maryland, Maryland State Education Association and other local organizations on Saturday, December 3rd to network and discover more about the up and coming Maryland Legislative Session. You will leave with the necessary information required to effect change and be an advocate for important issues that concern you as a citizen. The Maryland Legislative Coalition consists of the following grass root organizations: Together We Will – Baltimore Area, Indivisible Towson, Catonsville Indivisibles, Indivisible Montgomery, UMBC Progressives, Together We Will -Delmarva and WISE.
The Summit is being held at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County Campus at UMBC Engineering Building Lecture Hall on Sunday Dec 3rd from 10am to 6pm. Free parking is available. Snacks and water will be provided. Bring a lunch or eat on campus.
