In preparation for this summer’s White House Summit on Working Families, advocates are holding local forums around the country to identify initiatives that will benefit our nation’s working families, businesses and economy. On May 29, Marylanders will have the opportunity to inform the national Summit and build momentum around key policy goals and best practices to help workers and businesses succeed.

Join us to hear from government experts, including officials from the U.S. Department of Labor and the MD department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, as well as local policy experts who will examine how Maryland ranks when it comes critical issues such as wage disparities, workplace benefits, outcomes for low-income children and career advancement opportunities for low-skilled workers, among others. Speakers will reflect on how working families fared during the 2014 state legislative session and look to create momentum for change in 2015.

The event is co-hosted by the Job Opportunities Task Force, Advocates for Children and Youth, Maryland State Education Association, Public Justice Center, United Workers and Working Matters — The Maryland Campaign for Paid Sick Days.

We thank our sponsors, the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Family Values @ Work, for their generous support of this event.
