Sexual harassment has been swept under the rug in the Maryland General Assembly.
There are far too many stories told and untold.
Sign to show your support for the women and men who have been subject to ongoing sexual harassment, and to end a culture that protects perpetrators who still hold positions of power forcing victims to remain silent.
TO SURVIVORS - WE NEED YOUR HELP. PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORY:
Are you a survivor of this sort of behavior? If you would like to share your story, please use the comment section along with the #MDMeToo. Please feel free to give whatever details you feel comfortable.
We are not tracking the email addresses and your information will not be shared.
You may sign the petition with an alias if you are uncomfortable giving your information. You also may choose to make your name and comments private or public.
We will NOT stop! We DEMAND change! #TimesUpMaryland
- Numbers tracking: The General Assembly's current policy lists consequences, but that sentiment is undermined by the absence of numbers tracking this behavior or showing the policy’s effectiveness.
- Clear reporting process: We believe reporting should go through a neutral, impartial entity. This office would act as a resource center for accusers and ensure due process free of political influence.
- Mandatory training: We ask that the General Assembly institute mandatory trainings for elected officials, staff, interns, contractors and any person whose livelihood depends on their political relationships-- and it should occur annually, not once every four years. Rules of engagement and consent should be clearly defined.
