We joined the Climate Justice Wing of the Maryland Legislative Coalition in the Spring of 2020 to add our support to a coalition of groups from across Maryland who are working on climate and environmental legislation at the state level. Although the majority of MCA’s focus is appropriately directed at the local level, it is important for our voices to be heard at the state level and for others to learn about the strengths and resources of the Agricultural Reserve as well as its challenges. At the same time, we do not live on an island. Climate and equity events outside of our borders affect us deeply and it is important that we devote some time and effort to addressing these challenges through legislation at the state level.
