Who we are

The Frederick County Progressives exists to empower communities to act for social and economic justice by developing leaders, cultivating allies, and building grassroots power to advance economic, racial, and environmental equity for the benefit of all people in Frederick County and Maryland. We also pledge to support efforts to increase the participation of progressive voters in state and local affairs. To these ends, the Frederick County Progressives shall work to advance causes and issues the address the needs of Frederick County residents, encourage residents’ civic engagement, and assist in the election of progressive candidates to local, state, and national office in order to expand resources and opportunities for the benefit of Frederick County residents. 

 The values of Frederick County Progressives include, but are not limited to: anti-racism, economic justice, grassroots democracy, disability rights, community uplifting education, intersectionality, social justice and anti-oppression, political independence, gender and LGBTQ+ equity, sustainability, inherent human dignity, future-focused, nonviolence, community-centered, and environmental justice.

    Take Action


    Frederick Progressives is looking for volunteers to help with our efforts in getting Democrats - Biden, Alsobrook and Delaney -elected this fall, along with the BOE candidates we've endorsed - Bokee, Monier and Wilson.
    The 2024 election is critical for rescuing democracy from the authoritarian Republicans who have been steadily eroding constitutional rights, human rights and a creating a government that answers to the corporate and billionaire masters of the Republican party instead of working families. This is not hyperbole.
    We will be doing tabling, door knocking, phone banking and text banking to ensure a strong turnout of informed voters this November. We also need behind the scenes help with administrative and technical tasks.
