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.

    Knock Doors

    Welcome to #TeamMaryland! We’re so excited you're knocking doors for Angela Alsobrooks to be our next US Senator and April Delaney as our next Congresswoman from Maryland's 6th!

    First time volunteering? No worries! We will train you and send you with a buddy to knock doors together.

    Are you a pro canvasser? GREAT! Join us at our launch, meet our team, pick up your materials and head out on doors!

    What will you need?

    1. A smartphone to download the MiniVAN Touch app. Download it on iPhone or android.
    2. A full water bottle!
    3. Weather-appropriate clothes and good walking shoes!

    Who are you bringing along? We need everyone to WIN! The more folks we have on the doors, the more voters we will be able to bring.

    So forward this event to a friend or two...or three? Or share it on social media using the hashtag #TeamMaryland, #TeamAlsobrooks and #TeamDelaney.
