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.)
The campaign for Community Schools in Baltimore is just beginning. See the video, produced by AFT, that documents our launch:
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.)
October 21 4pm City Hall
