Maryland Interfaith Legislative Committee

We represent Maryland’s diverse faith communities and seek to find common ground to identify, develop, and support public policies that will protect poor and vulnerable Marylanders.

At the center of our faith values we are taught to care for the most vulnerable among us and work at all times for social and economic justice.  To be faithful, we must look at the causes of poverty and serve as advocates.  We promote the passage of Maryland laws and regulations that help to ensure fairness and common good.  We seek to eliminate legislative and regulatory barriers that keep individuals and families from escaping poverty.  The challenge before us is to develop congregation, stakeholder, and client participation in the policy-making process and to make our priorities the priorities of our elected and state regulatory officials.

Identifying, developing, and supporting Maryland public policies that will protect the poor and vulnerable.
