Repeal Sanctuary Status in Howard County, maryland!
Official Petition Turn-in Scheduled for Friday, March 5th.
We have the signatures, now we just need to prepare them for turn-in to the Howard County Board of Elections by Friday, March 5th, 2021. If we can raise the necessary funds to vet and prepare the petitions ahead of March 5th, then CB-63 moves closer to referendum and Howard County voters will have the chance to repeal this unjust law once and for all.
A county-wide petition drive is costly, and we need help covering the costs associated with having several dozen petition circulators working the field collecting signatures for 12 -14 hours each day.
Please consider donating $25, $50, $100, or more right away.
Send CB-63 to Referendum in 2022 & Let Citizens Decide!
On December 10th, Howard County Executive Calvin Ball signed CB-63, inappropriately named The Liberty Act, which prevents County employees from asking about the immigration status of residents, prohibits cooperation among law enforcement agencies, and requiring that certain information related to citizenship be kept confidential in Howard County.
