If you were able to come to our February Democratic Club meeting, you had the chance to hear from two wonderful speakers. Laura Hill let us know about the amazing work being done through her organization Youth to Teen. If you'd like to get involved, you can follow their Facebook page to find out more. At the meeting, Laura mentioned that transportation is often one of their greatest needs.
Sean Johnson from the Maryland State Education Association also spoke, and would like us to share some links and resources with all of you! You can explore everything the MSEA does for our teachers at their website. Also, each year the MSEA tracks about 500 bills-- Sean says that the easiest way to follow all of the legislation that could affect Maryland's education system is to sign up for their newsletters. You can read the latest newsletter at this link. At our meeting, he spoke on how Hogan has not been good for Maryland's teachers or our students, and more information about that can be found here. The MSEA is also planning a march to Fix the Fund on March 19; if you'd like to attend, please visit this link to RSVP.
