Our Diverse County: DTMG’s November 8 General Meeting

Did you know Montgomery County is home to three of the top ten most diverse cities in America, and that Germantown is ranked as the most diverse small city in the United States?

Our county has the largest Ethiopian population outside of Addis Ababa, and also home to an estimated 100,000 Muslims, yet neither population has a single member of their communities elected to higher office at the county, state or federal level. What does this mean for our county, our residents, our schools, transportation, economic opportunity, and participation in the political process?

Did you know that less than 17% of registered Democrats voted in the 2014 primary? Only about 35% of all Marylanders voted in last year’s presidential primary. If you’re interested in learning more about our  diversity, voter turnout and what it means for our local democracy, please join us on November 8. Our speakers, Hamza Khan and  Deborah Tshiovo will fascinate you as they highlight MoCo’s special place in the national fabric of our democracy, as well as how we can work to increase voter turnout in our county.

Date: Wed, Nov 8, 2017, 7:00-9:00 PM
