Md. PWG, Meeting Saturday Jan 14th, 2012, 2:00 pm, Wheaton Public Library

Last year PWG held a successful Monday night event in Annapolis. We combined several missions into one evening – a press conference about war funding, a dialogue of our issues with invited legislators, and lobbying where constituents visited their legislators on our chosen topics.

Successful "2011 Progressive Summit and Lobby Night" in Annapolis shows PWG's growing organizing strength and savvy

Eighty-four attendees, including 20 Maryland state legislators, and 64 members of 34 community organizations took part in a successful First Annual Progressive Summit and Lobby Night. The event was organized by the Progressive Working Group (PWG) in cooperation with Progressive Maryland.

It took place March 7th, 2011 at the Maryland General Assembly's House of Delegates in Annapolis.

In organizing the event, the PWG wanted legislators to know two things. First, progressive coalitions are getting bigger and more effective by the day. Second, progressives are united in their support for NINE priorities this session. The priorities are the same as those six that were deliberatively selected at the end of 2010 by PWG member organizations, plus 3 more highly actionable issues.
