2018 Democracy Champions


  

HERE ARE OUR 2018 DEMOCRACY CHAMPIONS

These legislators showed leadership and determination to promote the passage of the Democracy Amendment Resolution (DAR) during the 2018 session of the Maryland General Assembly.

The Democracy Amendment Resolution (DAR) is the strongest possible action that Maryland can take to reverse several bad decisions by the U. S. Supreme Court. These decisions enable the "messaging" of multi-national corporations and the ultra-wealthy to drown out the voices of millions of working citizens.
