Top aides to Senator Bernie Sanders founded Our Revolution in the wake of the disastrous November 2016 Presidential election. Our Revolution Maryland became one of its first state branches soon thereafter. We comprise six local chapters with thousands of dedicated activists fighting for true progressive change.
Our Revolution is necessary because most residents no longer have a real voice on critical decisions being made by federal, county, and state elected officials. Corporate lobbyists and establishment-approved politicians have taken over our government.
Our Revolution Maryland is taking on this new oligarchy. We are demanding that government meet the needs of the people, not the corporate lobbyists and wealthy campaign contributors. Our Revolution Maryland is activating tens of thousands of Maryland voters to take back their government. We will recruit, empower and train progressive candidates who won’t be bought. When we stick together we will win.
And in fact, we have already won–passing the first statewide fracking ban. And we will do more. Our agenda includes (but is not limited to the following): making MD a sanctuary state; enacting a $15 minimum wage statewide; ending punitive bail; and making state colleges and universities tuition-free.
