We started with one of my favorite advocacy organizations, Mom's Demand Action, and constituents from the 27th Legislative District. My district mate from 27A, Delegate Kevin M. Harris, and I spoke to the group of activists and listened to their thoughts, & concerns to push Maryland to be a safe state and curb the gun violence we see in our schools.
We kicked off Black History Month with a bang. Every day this month, we'll be acknowledging Black History figures from all over Southern Maryland and telling their stories that may never be told in history books.
Later that day was the Governor's first State of the State Address, and how befitting that Maryland's first black Governor would deliver his first address on the first day of Black History Month.
(Fun Fact: Maryland has the largest legislative black caucus in the nation)
Gov. Moore outlined his vision for Maryland's future, which you can find here: MGA.I couldn't be prouder to be in unison with the Administration's vision to lead Maryland into the future and leave no one behind. You can watch the address here: STATE OFTHE STATE.
I was delighted to be able to give the daily black history moment speech and highlight three individuals that have impacted the lives of Southern Marylanders as well as my own; Bishop John Jacob Aster Green, Gladys Kent Evans, and Benjamin James Hawkins. You can watch the speech here: SPEECH
