Veterans Diversity Leadership Council


The mission of the Maryland Democratic Party (MDP) Veterans Diversity Leadership Council is to energize activists through the state, register voters, amplify the Democratic message, engage with members of the diverse Veteran communities, and supplement the coordinated campaign to turn out Democratic voters throughout Maryland. In non campaign cycles the Veterans Diversity Leadership Council is responsible for increasing inclusiveness, capacity building, voter education, and empowerment of Maryland’s diverse communities. By working to energize all Veteran communities throughout Maryland, we will truly be able to realize our greatest potential. The Maryland Democratic Party Veterans Diversity Leadership Council creates a foundation for activism that is both inclusive and sustainable.
