Get Involved: support progressive candidates and issues

If you live in the Montgomery County Maryland area, please join the Montgomery County Progressive Alliance. MCPA is local, independent coalition of organizations. MCPA organizes debates, forums and other events to inform the public and advance understanding and progress in Montgomery County. In 2010, MCPA will endorse candidates and issue campaigns, educate the general public on issues, host events, and otherwise support progressive issues and campaigns as MCPA and in concert with other organizations.

Contact to work with MCPA.

We’re very close to the end of 2009, and gearing up for an exciting, important 2010. To achieve everything we should, to expand and extend our meetings, forums, outreach, and support for the best candidates, we ask you to become a paying member of MCPA now.

Paying members will be eligible to serve on committees (including the new steering committee), participate in charting our course into the next year including formulating the process through which we will nominate candidates and voting to endorse candidates for office in 2010. Organizations and individuals are eligible to join MCPA.

Paying members will also participate in our planning and decision-making processes governing our role in state and local elections. Committees will study and make recommendations for MCPA’s positions on issues facing all levels of government including: health policy, transportation and land use, energy and environment, equality under the law, accurate and transparent elections, clean politics including public campaign financing and other fundamental changes in access to our government, affordable housing, access to needed services, protection from public or private violations of basic rights, respect and support for all members of our community–regardless of race, age, gender, sexual identity, national origin, creed, denomination, religion or lack thereof. As a paying member, you will participate in our process, establishing our priorities, allocating our resources, making a real difference.

Please become a paying member of MCPA (low cost of $25 per year–only $2.08 per month) to participate in the changes you want to see in Montgomery County. In appreciation for your support, we will provide full membership benefits to you from the time we receive payment until the end of 2010.
