April 4th at 7:00 PM at the BGP office at 100 E. 23rd Street we will be having our last meeting before our May 1st Primary.
The business of this meeting will focus on the upcoming primary and what we need to do to get prepared for it.
We will also discuss two important aspects of the re-branding efforts that we have been discussing for a couple of months. The first is the "North Carolina amendment" a national platform change that would clarify the economic position of the Green Party, the second is a change to the mission statement of the BGP that would align us more closely with the activism that we have been engaged in here in Baltimore.
