Meet to End Mass Incarceration of Black and Brown people in MD.

Wednesday September 14, 7:40 to 9 pm

Meet with our new working group to discuss the massive flow of black and brown people into Maryland’s prisons, at Historic Takoma, 7328 Carroll Ave, Takoma Park. We will begin by reviewing what we’ve learned from our first meeting with Delegate David Moon, State Senator Will Smith, and Lorig Charkoudian, who runs Community Mediation Maryland and works on all these issues.  We will discuss a plan to address expungements, school arrests (Blair and Wheaton are among the highest in MD), and other steps.

Come on down to TPMobilization’s All Community Gathering!

Saturday September 16, 5:00 – 6:30 pm

Mobilize your voices, your minds, and and all your progressive parts at Piney Branch Elementary School, 7510 Maple Ave., Takoma Park.

If the Trump “presidency,” ending DACA and events like Charlottesville have been getting you down, then you haven’t learned to sing protest songs from Beth Lyons and her VoiceExchange. At this Community Meeting, you won’t just listen or watch.

Learn how you can get more active in a TPMobilization working group and hear what we’ve been doing lately. Political action is fun!

 Tell Larry what you want

Wednesday October 4, 7:30 to 9:30 pm

Waiting on Larry Hogan to answer your questions or listen to you about healthcare, environment and public education? Fuggeddaboudit. Well, he can’t hide from us anymore.

We’re getting together at Richard Montgomery High School Auditorium in Rockville, with Congressman Jamie Raskin and policy experts to decide what you think Hogan needs to hear from us on these issues. Join your neighbors as Marylanders Speak to Governor Hogan.

Sign up here and submit questions for our panel: Leni Preston, President, Consumer Health First; Mike Tidwell, Founder & Director, Chesapeake Climate Action Network; and David Hornbeck, former State Superintendent of Schools, and Co-founder of Strong Schools Maryland. Then, everyone at the meeting will vote on what we want from Mr. Hogan right now and next November. We will send results of our voting to Maryland officials, including our Governor, and to TV, print and electronic media, following the event.
