Olney Demands Democracy!

Please join your neighbors in Olney, Maryland as we stand up for Democracy!

Bring candles, signs, and your friends.

We must urgently rise up to defend our democratic system. That’s why we will come together once more on Wednesday, July 18th for a national vigil to Confront Corruption: Demand Democracy.

Confirmed Speakers:

Del. Pamela Queen (MD Dist. 14)
Dr. Jean S. Gearon
(Founder, Women's Alliance for Democracy & Justice)
Mike Hersh
(Communications Director, Progressive Democrats of America)
Andre Tulloch
(MCPS Minority Scholars Program Liaison and SGA President, Watkins Mill HS)
Karina Vasudeva
(2020 Class Secretary, B-CC HS, and MCR-SGA Legislative Affairs)

A representative from the office of Congressman John Sarbanes (MD-3) will also be joining us.

Democracy is how we hold wrongdoers accountable and create a government that reflects our values of inclusivity, justice and decency.  

These vigils, happening across the country, will also serve as the public launch of a new coalition effort known as the Declaration for American Democracy, an initiative to build support for a suite of reforms to create a political system that works for all of us, not just the privileged and the powerful.

We hope you’ll join us on July 18 to show the people power behind the fight for democracy, humanity and morality.

We will meet at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Emory Lane.
