Bill to expand ex-offender voting rights moving in the General Assembly

SB340, a bill that will extend voting rights to all released on from prison, is advancing in the Maryland Senate and is expected to come to a final vote on Monday, March 16 .  

Take action today to urge your Senator to vote for SB340

Communities United is leading this fight, having initiated the Unlock the Vote coalition. Our ex-offender organizer Perry Hopkins provided powerful testimony at both hearings. (Center, photo below.)

Hundreds Rally for Community Schools!

Our October 21 rally for Community Schools was a huge success. Over 300 parents, teachers, community members and kids - lots of kids! - turned out. The kids made the event, helping to lead chants like "Whose Schools? Our Schools!" and "What to we want? Community Schools."

(STAY TUNED: Next action is NOVEMBER 20 -- Early morning school "Walk-in" for Community Schools.)
