Represent Maryland puts regular people at the center of the solution to end corruption in politics.
Founded in 2015 by activist and organizer Cristi D, Represent Maryland has grown into a network of volunteers across the state. We currently have action teams in multiple counties and Baltimore City and are growing fast. Our goal is to have action teams in all 24 counties, who will work for local anti corruption solutions.
Represent Maryland is a 100% volunteer organization. Regular people who are fed up with "politics as usual" are at the core of our plan to pass common sense anti corruption legislation. Volunteers do all the leg work to build our network: canvassing, door knocking, tabling, research and more.
Represent Maryland is a partner of Represent.Us but is not funded or directed by them. All decisions are made locally.
Represent Maryland works on many of the solutions outlined in The American Anti-Corruption Act' (AACA). The AACA is comprehensive anti corruption legislation including provisions to eliminate dark money and legal bribery, end gerrymandering, establish open primaries and ranked choice voting and increase ethics and transparency. These changes will ensure elected officials represent their constituents, NOT corporations and special interests
We've added other solutions not listed in the AACA into our body of work, including A Democracy Amendment for the United States Constitution and establishing special elections in Maryland. See our full list of solutions here.
