Like a droplet causing ripples in still water, your donation makes it possible for us to broaden civic participation in local communities and train emerging leaders who, in turn, engage others. Some Maryland residents who live below the federal poverty line--in one of the country’s wealthiest regions--feel that their voices don’t matter resulting in many people feeling disillusioned and detached from the political process. Help us to change the narrative.
With your support, we have already achieved impressive outcomes: disseminating ballot information to hundreds of Maryland residents; conducting trainings for over 150 interns and high schoolers. This year, your donation will allow us to train the public to identify and address hate crimes and bias-related incidents in addition to developing an advocacy campaign to require hate crime training for Maryland Law Enforcement.
When you invest in helping people organize, participate in government, and teach others, you make real change possible. So please give generously today.
Or if you prefer, you can print out and complete a donation form (PDF) and mail it to us with your check.
