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.
