About OR MoCo

Our Revolution Montgomery County (OR MoCo) seeks to promote economic, social, racial, and environmental justice and counter the corrupting influences of wealth and power through community organizing, political engagement, education, and outreach.  Launched in late 2016 as one of six local chapters of Our Revolution Maryland – a 501c(4) nonprofit political organization – we have grown to more than 100 active members in Montgomery County.

By joining OR MoCo, you can help build a grassroots movement to reclaim democracy.  Our members are leading efforts to develop and advocate for a state and local policy agenda, endorse and elect candidates, and build the strongest member-led progressive organization in Maryland.
