MCPA has approximately 1,000 members working on several progressive issues including peace, healthcare, and elections (campaign finance reform/public financing and paper-ballot verified voting).

There are about a dozen strong, progressive candidates seeking office in Maryland this cycle. We hope to mobilize our members to support these candidates and then work closely with them to achieve progress on our issues on the federal, state and local levels.

We’ve held several forums on issues, and plan to hold ongoing Pot Luck Progressive Speaker Series forums once per month starting in August, 2010. We’ve been successful partnering with progressive organizations, and will continue building coalitions in Maryland.
