The Maryland Green Party Assembly will be held tomorrow, May 31, at the Takoma Park Presbyterian Church, 310 Tulip Avenue, Takoma Park from 10 am to 4 pm.
Complete details are available here.
Registration will be open from 9:30-10am. We are suggesting a $20 donation to help cover the costs of the event but registration costs are on a sliding scale according to your income and no one will be turned away for inability to contribute.
Morning sessions will include a business meeting and party officer elections from 10-10:30 and a panel of Green Party candidates running in this November's election from 10:30-11:30.
You can bring a lunch or visit one of several options nearby in Takoma Park. Click here to read more about lunch options.
In the afternoon we will have two panels.
Confirmed panelists for our 1-2pm panel on party cooperation with labor unions include Nick McDaniels, a building rep for the Baltimore Teachers Union; Virginia Rodino, a communications specialist for the Service Employees International Union; and Darryl Moch, former director of the Labor Heritage Foundation and co-chair of the Green Party of the United States.
From 2-3pm, Sam Pizzigati will discuss solutions to income inequality in America. Sam is an Institute for Policy Studies associate fellow and the nation's chief proponent of the maximum wage concept. Sam edits the weekly newsletter Too Much.
From 3-4pm we will conclude our assembly.
We hope to see you in Takoma Park tomorrow!
