Indivisible and Progressive Groups on the Shore Rally to Demand Rep. Andy Harris Back Democracy Reform

Share

On January 3, Indivisible groups from Dorchester, Kent/Queen Anne’s and Worcester Counties, plus Lower Shore Progressive Caucus, Talbot Rising and Together We Will – Delmarva, will be holding their first coordinated joint demonstrations of the year at Congressman Andy Harris’ Kent Island district office and in front of Wicomico County Circuit Court in Salisbury, calling for his strong support for the democracy reform bill that Democrats are expected to introduce that day (H.R. 1).

The demonstration is part of the Indivisible movement’s “Whose House? Our House!” national day of action.  After helping build the “blue wave” that put Democrats in control of the House of Representatives, Indivisible groups will be asking their representatives to publicly demand that H.R. 1 be a bold, progressive, comprehensive democracy package that includes reforms on voter empowerment and access, money in politics reforms, and corruption fixes.

WHAT: “Who’s House? Our House!” Kickoff Rally
