2018 Legislative Wrap Up and Happy Hour

May 2, 2018    6:30-8:30pm

 

  

Join us to raise a glass to the "Year of the Woman" and celebrate our successes in Annapolis!

Everyone is calling 2018 the "Year of the Woman" and that seems to be true here in Maryland and particularly Annapolis! This year, three of MLAW's top legislative priorities passed the General Assembly, along with many other bills that benefit women and families.

 

Join us on May 2nd from 6:30 - 8:30pm at HomeSlyce Pizza Bar in Columbia to celebrate our legislative victories and learn about the bills that made it through the legislative process to become Maryland law. Network with other advocates over a glass of wine or beer and sample some delicious pizza.

The event is free and open to anyone. Light refreshments will be served. Guests may also purchase alcoholic beverages or order from the menu. Please register to attend! There is no cost to register, but we would like a head count to plan.  Click here for more information and to register.


For more information, call 443-519-1005 or email mdlegagenda4women@yahoo.com.

Local Support for March for Our Lives

Posted 30 March 2018

CCDCC March for Our Lives       CCDCC March for Our Lives     CCCDCC March for Our Lives

Last Saturday, March 24th, saw a movement that began with the teenagers in Florida but extended to all ages all across America. Hundreds of thousands attended March for Our Lives rallies in nearly 800 locations, the largest being in Washington D.C.  Many local Democrats were there to stand up for safe schools and an end to gun violence.

CCDCC at March for Our Lives

“I volunteered to register people to vote at the March for Our Lives!  We met up in the morning at the Georgetown University Law Center to pick up supplies and receive training.  It was a very well-coordinated event.  [The organizers] did a great job speaking to the volunteers to get us excited about what we were about to do. It may have been the biggest voter registration effort in history.”  -Kim Blair

“This is a movement I feel strongly about and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to show my support with one of my best friends. The entire day was moving and it really impacted me. I have faith in March for Our Lives and I am confident that change is coming.” - Yavor Gray (on the left), CASC Historian, HHS FBLA Historian

CCDWC

While the CCDWC is extremely pleased at the passage of bill ensuring that women in prison have access to menstrual hygiene products, the fact that the bill will not take affect for 6 months is upsetting. So this month, the CCDWC is suspending its food drive for a sanitary napkin drive. At the May 1st meeting, please bring in unscented sanitary pads in their original, unopened packaging. This Women’s Month, let’s ensure that all Maryland women are treated with dignity.

 

 

Phone Banking

CCDCC Phone Banking

The Calvert Democratic Club is reaching out to registered Democrats who voted in 2016 but not in 2014 to see what issues matter to them and encourage them to come out for this year's mid-term elections. If you've never made calls before, don't be afraid to give it a try. We know it can seem intimidating, but it's also rewarding to talk to fellow Democrats who are fired up about what's going on locally and nationally. Several volunteers have said it was easier than they thought and that any nervousness faded away quickly. And remember that you won't be making calls alone, and that someone will be there to walk you through any issues. A new volunteer can get trained on the system and ready to make calls in about 10 minutes. There are a lot of Democrats who didn't vote in 2014 that we need to get in touch with, so even if you can only sign up for one session a month, or can only make it for an hour, please consider pitching in.

 

The Club will be hosting two sessions a week - Sundays from 12-2pm and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm at Democratic Headquarters in Prince Frederick. You can sign up for this session here.

If you have any questions about phone banking, please email calvertdemclub@gmail.com
