Welcome to Common Cause Maryland!
Common Cause Maryland is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to restoring the core values of American democracy, reinventing an open, honest and accountable government that works in the public interest, and empowering ordinary people to make their voices heard. Founded in 1974, Common Cause Maryland is one of the state’s most effective watchdog groups and has been a strong force for reform at the state and local levels.
The 2014 legislative session runs January 8 through April 7. Common Cause Maryland is offering a lot of opportunities to get involved, stay informed, and take action. We will also be offering the first ever "Lobby Like a Pro" training. Take part in a seven part training series and learn the inside scoop on how things work in Annapolis. Registration and legislative preview available here!
Councilman Andrews, joined by a majority of the County Council, has introduced a bill to establish public funding for county elections.
Political cartoons have a proud history of driving policy change. Common Cause Maryland is working with the League of Women Voters of Maryland and the National Council of Jewish Women Annapolis Section to build on that history by running our own political cartoon contest on Maryland's gerrymandered districts! Find out more about the contest here, and click here for a copy of the rules and entry form.
Common Cause Maryland is currently seeking motivated applicants for two fall internships. Applications are requested by September 6 but will be considered on a rolling basis.
