Bernie Sanders for President!

Way back in April, Our Revolution Maryland endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. But if you haven’t read our April Newsletter, you might have missed that fact. We noted:  “Over the past few weeks ORMD Chapters polled members and the results were overwhelmingly in favor of endorsing Bernie with over 65% of respondents saying they support his candidacy. ORMD will be leading Maryland for Sanders both in the Free State and in nearby states.”

Unsurprisingly, Our Revolution – ORMD’s parent organization – endorsed Bernie shortly after he announced that he was running for President in 2020. A few days ago, Our Revolution Massachussetts announced that it too is endorsing Bernie. Many other Our Revolution groups around the country have also formally endorsed Bernie for President!

Lights for Liberty!

The administration’s persecution of Latin American immigrants fleeing violence and repression in their home countries is a great moral issue of our time. A just nation recoils at cruelty and oppression. Our Revolution Maryland is a sponsor of Lights for Liberty which this Friday July 12 “will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide” at one united Vigil to End Human Concentration Camps “to protest the inhumane conditions faced by migrants.” Continue reading

There are some great pics in the July Newsletter at 4.

Monday, July 2, ORMoCo and Western Maryland activists met with Congressman David Trone to urge him to co-sponsor HR 1384 – Medicare-for-All! The meeting was reasonably productive and ended on a positive note. Click “continue reading” for Amy Frieder‘s notes. Continue reading

New Anne Arundel Chapter!

Our Revolution Maryland is thrilled to announce the certification of its newest chapter in Anne Arundel County. Interim Co-Chairs are Dan Piper and Clayton Northcraft.

Dan is a veteran of an early iteration of the Anne Arundel Chapter which he co-led when it met on a few occasions in 2017 and early 2018. Clayton just recently joined the Our Revolution team. Certification as a chapter was based on the continuing involvement since April of dedicated Anne Arundel residents.

At the June 2 meeting, 12 committed activists came and requested certification. Ten participated in the May meeting. On June 2, Sierra Club Maryland’s Matt Dernoga reported on his organization’s Beyond Coal campaign and the ways coal is exacerbating climate change even though we don’t rely on it for a significant percentage of overall energy.

The new members also discussed the issues that are most important to them including but not limited to the climate crisis, Medicarefor-All, and economic justice. The Anne Arundel Chapter will be leading Our Revolution Maryland during Annapolis’s first annual Pride Parade June 29. For more information, please email claytonnorthcraft@outlook.com. The next meeting is scheduled for July 14. Time and location will be announced shortly

Just say no to supersized/privatized highways!

Our Revolution Maryland proudly co-sponsored Montgomery County Councilmember Tom Hucker‘s Townhall Sunday May 10 at the Silver Spring Civic Building. A standing room only crowd of nearly 1,000 people pressed into the Great Hall to hear politicians and activists speak out against Governor Hogan’s awful plan to add privately owned toll lanes to I-495 and I-270. Speaking on Our Revolution Maryland’s behalf, Silver Spring resident Dayo Akinsheye repeatedly brought the crowd to its feet. She was also quoted in both the Washington Post and Maryland Matters. Watch the video here.
