Ben Jealous' priority in 2018 is to flip the Maryland governor's mansion from Republican control back to the people, and he is going to do it by running a campaign committed to these fundamental values:
This race is one of our best opportunities to elect a progressive champion to a governor's seat in 2018. Ben is a coalition builder who served as the youngest NAACP President in history. He has led campaigns for marriage equality, immigrant rights, voting rights, the environment, abolishing the death penalty, and getting big money out of politics in Maryland. Just this week he stood up for Maryland children when many were forced to go to schools without heat.
Ben understands that when one person suffers, we all suffer. From working as a student organizer for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to reporting for the Jackson Advocate, Mississippi's oldest historically black newspaper, to exposing corruption at a state prison and fighting to keep the doors open at black colleges, Ben's commitment to justice and opportunity for all has a long track record. It is the synthesis of the values Our Revolution looks for in candidates for office.
Please make a $5 contribution to Ben Jealous' campaign for Governor of Maryland before their first fundraising deadline of 2018. Together, we can win this seat back from Republican control and implement progressive policies to make life better for all Marylanders.
Part of building a progressive America is electing progressive champions who will use the people's power to advance public policies that make a real difference—Ben Jealous is that champion.
