PWG's 2012 Legislative session summary

The General Assembly has ended. In terms of the Progressive Working Group's priorities, we had two clear victories.

Second Annual Progressive Summit, Monday March 12 2012, Progressive Working Group

Last year, many groups came together for the first Progressive Summit, which proved very successful, and we would like to make this year's Summit an even bigger event.

On March 12, we will be lobbying key legislators, including committee chairs, beginning at 3:30 pm. We will have appointments and a summit meeting until 8 pm, so come as early as you're able. Our meeting room, from 3 to 8 pm, will be the Ways and Means Committee Meeting Room in the House Office Building in Annapolis.

1. Brief review of PWG's 2011 activities and accomplishments

Maryland session yields mixed results in 2011

Here is the final disposition of the PWG's priority issues in the 2011 General Assembly.

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.

Coalition identifies priorities for the 2011 Maryland legislative session

The Progressive Working Group (PWG) met Sunday, December 12, 2010 at the Wheaton Regional Library. At that meeting, the PWG members voted to focus on 6 issues during the 2011 General Assembly session:
