They divide us to hold onto power. We just want a better future.

When everyday people from diverse backgrounds set aside the conflicts fed to us by those in power, and focus together on our visions for the future, we always find common ground. Future Matters is a bold Maryland initiative to do just that, led by people in the heart of the state who have proven it can work.

Future Matters blends old-fashioned person-to-person organizing with the digital tools of modern politics, working one community at a time to engage, educate, and empower people at a local level. Take a moment to read more about what we do and who we are, then sign up to get involved.
