Maryland’s Activists Back Sanders

Following latest hopeful endorsements from Maybin and Rose, Black voters will give Sanders the thumbs up come April, 26.

Reports from the presidential camp of Sanders last Thursday declared that a number of Baltimore’s top civil rights activists have pledged their backing for Bernie Sanders.

Former NFL linebacker and founder of Project Mayhem, Aaron Maybin, and prominent activist Kwame Rose, two of Blatimore’s strongest activists, in an internet post wrote:

“In the midst of a race dominated by divisive antics, and candidates appealing to their self-interests in lieu of what’s best for the American people, sincerity and honesty are the cornerstones of Sen. Sanders’ historic candidacy.”

“As criminal justice reformers, we stand with Sen. Sanders because he’s fervently committed to ending mass incarceration and increasing equity in the justice system, reflected in his more than three decades of standing at the forefront of inequality and his courage to hold violators of justice accountable,” the post said.

Supporting Sen. Sanders in his bid for Black votes include the following Maryland advocates: Anthony Johnson, Calvin Young, ShaiVaugh Crawley, James Williams, Donna Brown, Joshua Harris, Megan Kenny, Keanuu Smith-Brown, Chris Wilson, Dejuan Patterson and Rashad Staton.

As part of his campaign tour Sanders visited West Baltimore, making him the only presidential candidate, apart from Maryland Gov. O’Malley. He also toured Sandtown-Winchester last December.
