Yes! I Will Help Common Cause Maryland Protect Our Democracy

Though this year came with its highs and lows, one message rang loud and clear: We The People are committed to democracy – and we’re willing to put in the work to defend it.

With your continued support, we’ll keep fighting for a democracy that works for all of us here in Maryland. And that’s because change doesn’t just take place on Election Day — democracy starts with people like you and me taking an active role in our communities and working on the issues that affect us and our families.

And on this Giving Tuesday, the biggest impact you can make — as a voter, an activist, or a citizen — is on the state and local level. Will you chip in and fuel our efforts to ensure that our democracy works for all of us?


Strengthening Democracy In Maryland

We’re working to build a reflective and representative democracy. One that works for all Marylanders - regardless of race, class, gender, and more - because it reflects who we are and how we live in the 21st Century.

Marylanders deserve open, honest, accountable government. We'll deliver it!

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.
