Get Money Out–Maryland, Inc. (GMOM) is an all-volunteer force seeking to get big money out of our political system and make elections fairer. Policies that have overwhelming popular support are thwarted because big campaign funders lobby to make themselves even wealthier. We the People must organize to make our democracy work for us.
Go to Costs of Corruption to find out how wealthy individuals and multinational corporations use money in politics, corporate Constitutional rights, and voter suppression to deny working people their fair share.
We are currently working with 29 organizations in the For the People - Maryland Coalition to promote democracy, make elections fairer, and strengthen political equality. We support statehood for DC, the John R. Lewis Act, the Freedom to Vote Act, and the DISCLOSE Act. We are also supporting major reforms of the Supreme Court, including term limits, an enforceable code of ethics, and adding justices.

On May 3, 2023, we co-sponsored a forum with the Maryland League of Women Voters regarding the legitimacy of the U.S. Supreme Court. Watch the full video
