Western Maryland Chapter

Our Revolution – Western Maryland is a chapter of the state organization representing Allegany, Frederick, Garrett, and Washington Counties. We work to elect Democratic/Progressive candidates at all levels of government and to support Progressive causes throughout Western Maryland. Our Chapter started in late 2016 in an overcrowded meeting room in the Thurmont Library; since that day, the Chapter has grown to over 700 members. Learn how you can get in on the fun at upcoming meetings, events, and actions by joining the Chapter’s Facebook group and following our Facebook page.

Our Mission

Revitalize American Democracy

Our Revolution – Western Maryland will foster the growing wave of political activism unifying millions of people across our country. From rallying behind Progressive leaders like Senator Bernie Sanders, to flooding the streets demanding that society ensure the safety and value of black lives, and fighting the seemingly endless fight to bring equal rights and respect to the LGBTQ community, Americans from all walks of life are taking up their place, and their power, within American Democracy. Our Revolution will broadcast the voice of the People throughout the political system by activating supporters and engaging these millions of Americans in the political process.

Empower Progressive Leaders

Our Revolution – Western Maryland will fulfill the call of the national organization to empower the next generation of progressive leaders by inspiring and recruiting progressive candidates to run for offices across the entire spectrum of government throughout our regions. From school boards to congressional seats, we will champion a new generation of political leaders dedicated to building communities on the foundations of justice, equality, health, safety, and prosperity for everyone. We will work with the national organization to provide these leaders with all of the digital tools, organizing knowledge and grassroots support it has in store.

Solve Local, State, and National Problems

Our Revolution – Western Maryland, in partnership with the state and national organization, will bring state and national attention to local problems so that we may utilize the force and resources they bring to enact meaningful solutions. At the same time, we will educate the public throughout our region about the bold, progressive solutions being offered in response to the most pressing issues confronting our state and our nation. We want the voices of Western Maryland residents to be the final blow that demolishes the walls of injustice and inequality plaguing all levels of our society.


Join the Discussion!

Our Revolution-Western Maryland encourages its members to share and raise awareness about issues that are important to them through our Facebook Group. This means you may encounter opinions that are different from yours, which we believe can lead to important conversations and understanding. However, to help balance the needs, safety, and interests of our diverse community, we may remove certain kinds of content or limit the audience that sees 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 this manner of conversation continues, you may be blocked from the group.
