Advocacy Events: Attend an Advocacy Town Hall this January

By Elly Colmers Cowan

In advance of the opening of the Session of the Maryland General Assembly, Preservation Maryland will host several free public meetings to share our legislative agenda and encourage citizen participation throughout the year. We do our best to make it easy and there is no doubt that your advocacy is essential.

Marylanders deserve well-preserved neighborhoods, historic sites, and cultural landscapes! If you agree, join us, the only way we’ll accomplish these goals is by working together in advocacy. 

Preservation Maryland and the Maryland League of Conservation Voters Education Fund with our local partners, will host a series of legislative preview meeting across  the Old Line State this January. At these important town hall-style meetings, attendees will learn about local, state, and federal advocacy efforts to help save and support places that matter and how you can personally be a force for preservation and conservation.
