The OSI-supported People’s Commission to Decriminalize Maryland has been working to make policy recommendations to change various laws that unnecessarily criminalize a wide range of behavior. There are five workgroups: drug police, sex work, homelessness, poverty, and youth.
The Commission encourages all Marylanders to complete this *brief* survey to give some feedback on what kind of criminalization you’ve seen in your area. The Commission especially need folks from the Western, Southern, and Eastern Shore regions to participate.
Also register here for the Commission’s regional webinars. You’re welcome to attend any of them, but if possible attend the region that you are most affiliated with. The webinar will give a brief overview of the Commission, and will also ask for input and comment about people’s experiences.
