Recently, the Moral Movement Maryland held an “intercultural potluck” for community members, advocates and organizers across issue areas, the Faith community, and student groups. The upcoming meeting on December 11 is an intentional meeting for the faith community
Faith leaders and activists have successfully mobilized together in past movements such as living wage, criminal justice reform, and sick leave to correct the injustice in policy and legislation.
With two momentous and vigorous, people-powered campaigns to override the Gubernatorial Vetoes on Earned Sick Leave and the HOME Act, the 2018 Maryland Legislative Session promises to be of great significance and importance to the quality of life of the poor, working class, people of color, women, students, and the disenfranchised. Moral Movement Maryland will inject a moral voice into the political conversation and remind policymakers that the role of government is not to enrich a few, but to uplift the masses.
As we seek to take our moral message to Annapolis, we seek to build sustainable relationships and support the campaigns and the legislative work of other dedicated organizations whose goals and objectives strategically align with ours, and with the mission of the larger Moral Monday Movement.
To that end, we invite you to join us for our Moral Legislative Town Hall Discussion with other faith leaders on Monday, December 11, 2017 at New Unity Church & Ministries
(100 W. Franklin St. Baltimore, MD 21201) at 7:00 PM to discuss ways clergy can provide a moral voice and become part of Moral Movement Maryland to move the lives of all Marylanders forward.
We invite you to extend this invitation to other clergy and faith leaders across the state in the efforts to build a movement and moral agenda that reflects the diversity Maryland and underpinnings of our shared values.
