Communities United is devoted to deep and sustained organizing of Marylanders at the very bottom of our state's economic ladder. Help us leverage $5,000 towards our organizing!
One of our supporters has pledged $5,000 IF we can match that $5,000 dollar for dollar. We have raised $1,910 thus far. Please make a gift of $5, $25 or even $100 to Communities United to help us make this match.
Every $1 you give today will leverage another $1.
Communities United in on the front lines challenging income inequality -- one of the paramount moral issues of our time! Even in wealthy Maryland – the richest state in the nation – income inequality is higher today than it was in the 1920s:
The poorest 20% of Marylanders have less than 4% of all state income.
The top 20% control 48% of all income.
The middle 60% share the near half that remains
CU members are so committed to transforming Maryland's economy and institutions to work for all of us that they commit to monthly dues between $5 and $10 dollars a month ($60 to $120 annually), a significant investment from hundreds of modest households, many below the poverty line. Member support means more than just paying the rent and keeping our WiFi on, it tells who we really are and what we seek to build.
Still, if we are to grow strong enough to take on the Goliath of economic and racial inequities that impact our daily lives, we need help from ALL people who agree with our cause. Please make your gift to Communities United today and see your support doubled.
Many thanks for any and all support you can give!
