Maryland State House

The 2023 Project

In 2021, our team began to establish a network of nonprofits, service providers and grassroots advocates with shared values who could ensure community voices shape state government priorities for the next four years and help Maryland’s next governor pursue policies that address critical issues from building thriving communities and taking bold climate action, to criminal justice reform, good jobs, worker protections, educational excellence, and reliable transportation. We convened 16 workgroups, gathered 20 community surveys, and oversaw 150 contributors as they developed 5 policy memos and 8 reports.
