Political Advocacy & Accountability

The Political Advocacy and Accountability Huddle supports the election of candidates with values important to WISE, works with them to implement their commitments through policies, legislation and budget, and holds them accountable for doing so. We also track campaign financing, promote issues-based inputs into the budget and legislative processes and work in collaboration with others to reduce the role of money in politics. If you would like to join us or receive more information, please email katherinebain4@gmail.com.

Additionally, we have a Legislative Affairs sub-huddle which organizes WISE’s efforts around priority pieces of legislation each session. WISE members research the issues, work with other groups including the state wide Maryland Legislative Coalition, testify, call legislators, participate in legislative breakfasts, organize lobby days, and much more, with view to getting legislation in favor of women and families’ rights passed. If you would like to join or receive more information about our sub-huddle, please email jgorski630@gmail.com.

For a look at what our PAA Huddle is doing, check out our posts below and our resources and priorities on our Legislation page.
