Our Revolution Western Maryland chapter was started in late 2016 in an overcrowded meeting room in the Thurmont Library; since that day the membership of the chapter has grown to over 700 people. The Chapter has identified focus issues of importance to members, including the environment (especially the proposed TransCanada Pipeline under the Potomac River and C&O canal at Hancock, Maryland), Medicare for All and other healthcare issues including the opioid crisis.

The chapter has already held a Climate Change march in Hagerstown, and in #No-Potomac-Pipeline events leading up to a December 19, 2017 Maryland Department of the Environment hearing in Hancock.
The Chapter has also worked closely with the Montgomery County Chapter on a joint process to endorse a candidate for the 6th Congressional District in the US House of Representatives.

Our Mission

Revitalize American Democracy

“Our Revolution will revitalize American democracy by unifying the millions of people who got involved over the course of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign in support of progressive causes. Our Revolution will give the people a major voice in the political system by activating supporters and engaging millions more Americans in the political process.”

Empower Progressive Leaders

“Our Revolution will empower the next generation of progressive leaders by inspiring and recruiting progressive candidates to run for offices across the entire spectrum of government. From school boards to congressional seats, a new generation of political leaders, dedicated to transforming America’s corrupt campaign finance system and rigged economy, will become involved. Our Revolution will provide leaders inspired by the “political revolution” with the unparalleled digital tools, organizing knowledge and grassroots support successfully utilized throughout Senator Sanders’ campaign.”

Elevate Political Consciousness

“The corporate media has largely failed to cover the issues critical to the future of our country: from the devastating effects of climate change to the decline of the middle class. Our Revolution will educate the public about the most pressing issues confronting our nation and the bold solutions being offered. This effort will ensure that drowned out voices are heard and become an important part of the local, state and national dialogue.”

Our Revolution is a 501(c)(4) organization.

Our Revolution – Western Maryland is a chapter of the national organization.

Western Maryland includes the regions of Allegany County, Frederick County, Garrett County, and Washington County

Our Revolution-Western Maryland  encourages its members to share and raise awareness about issues that are important to them. This means you may encounter opinions that are different from yours, which we believe can lead to important conversations and understanding. To help balance the needs, safety and interests of our diverse community, however, we may remove certain kinds of content or limit the audience that see it. We permit open and critical discussion of people who are featured in news or have a large public audience. We will, however, remove credible threats to public figures and private individuals, as well as hate speech directed at them. We will not tolerate bullying or harassment. We allow you to speak freely on matters and people of public interest, but will remove content that appears to purposefully target private individuals with intention of degrading or shaming them. Our policy will be to warn the Facebook poster once. If the conversation continues you may be blocked from the group.
