Event description

Description

Six hundred Marylanders signed a letter requesting Governor Hogan hold a forum sometime this fall or winter on key issues raised by the Trump administration’s policies. He said no. The issues are too important for Marylanders to sit back and wait for the Governor to lead. Our policy experts will address how Maryland can respond.

Congressman Jamie Raskin will make opening remarks. Policy experts will address Maryland’s response to Trump administration initiatives in:

+ Healthcare

+ Environment

+ Public Education

Attendees will vote to prioritize where our Governor should take a stand, and WE WILL LET HIM KNOW. Voting results will be reported out to state officials and the media.

Doors open at 7pm

FAQs

Will Governor Hogan be there?

No. After hundreds of Marylanders signed letters asking him to host a forum, he declined. We can't keep waiting for Governor Hogan to show leadership, so we chose a date to have policy experts talk on the issues with or without him. Once October 4 was confirmed, we again extended an invitation to him. He declined again.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, RSVPs are needed to help ensure we have a large enough space for the event, but you do not need to bring your ticket.

Does RSVPing here save me a seat?

No, seats are on a first come first served basis, however we ask for RSVPs so that if anything changes, we have a way to reach you, and so that we can ensure the space is big enough.
