URGENT ACTION FOR CLIMATE SOLUTIONS NOW

The Climate Solutions Now bill has been gutted by House amendment, dropping the  60% target by 2030, eliminating sustainable building changes and more.  Now is not the time to go small.  Push hard; let your representatives know Marylanders want bold action on Climate Crisis.  Sign on to this petition from the Maryland Legislative coalition
FOR THE PEOPLE PHONE BANKS

The For The People Act (HR1/S1) will 

  • Stop Big Money from calling the shots in our politics

  • End partisan gerrymandering

  • Protect our right to vote

  • Hold elected officials (including the president) to high ethical standards.  

But it will only pass if people like you and me are willing to take action. Join a virtual phone bank to make calls to activists in key states and help pass this groundbreaking democracy bill.  There’s training and plenty of times and dates so sign up here – democracy is worth an hour of your time, isn’t it?

Increase transparency in local zoning

CB24-2021, sponsored by Councilmember Liz Walsh, prohibits action on certain zoning applications while a new General Plan is in process. Typically these zoning actions benefit specific developers without any consideration to the actions congruity with the rest of the county’s existing plans. The act also requires disclosures of certain contributions and business relationships with any members of the county council and/or the county executive in compliance with the Maryland Public Ethics Law.

Please email your council member by April 5 at councilmail@howardcountymd.gov and tell them to vote ‘yes’ on CB24-2021.

Let the Light Shine
The Police Accountability Task Force has won an important victory - County Executive Ball announced that  Howard County will prioritize $3.2 million in funding for full implementation of a Body Worn Camera program for FY22.  There will be more work to make sure everything is implemented properly, but this is a major step forward.  The Task Force put together a successful campaign of constituent pressure to achieve their goal and make Howard County a safer place for everyone.
Combining the Immigration Team's success in ending the ICE contract, this has been a good week for grassroots organizing!
