Happy Holidays: Time to Rest and get ready to Repeat!

We made a huge difference in Virginia and Alabama because volunteers like you showed up and resisted! We’re now planning our pivot to Maryland, where we have a lot to do to turn out Democrats and progressives across the state to vote in Federal, State and Local elections. 

This link is staying up, and some time in January you’ll see us begin introducing new opportunities. In the interim, if you’d like to sign up to become an Action Lead or Phone Bank host, please do so on the  Event Sign Up Form

The DoTheMostGood Member Meeting and Fall Kickoff with J Walkers Action Group on September 13 will focus on State Government & the Midterm Elections. Our featured speakers, Maryland Delegate Aruna Miller (D-15) and Maryland Delegate Marc Korman (D-16) will provide an inside view of the structure and importance of state government, and how we as constituents can have an impact not only on elections but on legislation. We’ve also invited as guest speaker, Hala Ayala, Democratic candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates (D-51), to talk about the critical importance of Virginia’s statewide election THIS YEAR and how Maryland can help Flip Virginia Blue. Ashwani Jain, the Lead of DTMG’s Midterm Team will describe the team’s three-pronged approach to the Midterm Elections, including our ambitious plans to connect with voters throughout Montgomery County and across the state, and build the case that only Democrats have the vision and plans to move our state forward while protecting our values against the incursions of the Trump Administration. Together with our friend Jon Heintz of J Walkers Action Group, Ashwani will lay out the many ways each of us can become involved in electing Democrats in Virginia, Maryland and around the country. There’ll be time for questions, time for networking and time to watch a clever video or two.

On Oct. 4, Cast Your Vote on What Marylanders Expect of Our Governor!

Since January, many Marylanders have been frustrated by Governor Hogan’s lack of leadership in publicly addressing and supporting efforts to mitigate the potential impacts on Maryland of proposed federal policies and budgetary initiatives. Six hundred concerned Marylanders signed a letter inviting the Governor to attend a forum in Montgomery County to address those potential impacts. The Governor was advised that the forum would be held even in his absence, yet he declined our invitation on more than one occasion, indicating he was unavailable any weeknight evening in fall or winter 2017.

These issues are simply too important for us to wait for our Governor to lead, so we have assembled a panel of policy experts to address how our state can respond to actions taken by the Trump Administration in three key areas that directly impact Marylanders. In keeping with the name of the forum, Marylanders Speak to Governor Hogan, audience members will have an opportunity to submit questions for the panel after registering and will be able to vote to prioritize specific policy actions within each of the three issue areas.

The Forum will be held October 4, 2017, 7:30pm-9:00 pm, at Richard Montgomery High School, Rockville, MD 20852. Doors open at 7:00 PM. RSVP below, and use the links below to spread the word!

On Wednesday, September 6, from 7-9 PM DTMG’s Healthcare Team will be hosting a Healthcare Strategy Meeting in Rockville. This will be the first in a series of meetings; it will focus on the national level, then next on the state, and finally the county level. Health care experts from our representatives’ offices will discuss how we can work together on the next steps to assure accessible, quality healthcare for everyone. Leading this discussion will be Kelly Whitener, Associate Professor at Georgetown University’s School for Public Policy Center on Children and Families. RSVP here

On August 15, the anniversary of the first DACA application, we will protect the millions of immigrants who depend on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) programs! The Trump administration, along with far-right Republicans, have threatened to end these two programs, which have served as vital protections for immigrant families.

Come out with us on August 15th to let the Trump administration know that we will not allow them to take away these protections. Together we can protect millions and make the voices of our communities heard!

Almost one million people have benefited from the DACA program. DACA has provided immigrant youth with the opportunity for jobs, drivers licenses, and more stability to our communities. Similarly, TPS has aided thousands of immigrants, whose countries have suffered from major catastrophes. Although TPS has helped people find jobs and be protected from deportations for over a decade, Trump might decide to not renew the program! Our communities fought for these protections, and we won. Now, more than one million immigrants could lose the stability they have fought for, which would affect not only them but their families and our communities. We cannot allow extremist Republicans to revoke these programs, and leave immigrant families without protection from their deportation machine!

It’s time to fight! #HereToStay

Hosted by United We Dream
Stay tuned for more updates in this Facebook event soon!
