Diversity Leadership Councils

DLCThe Maryland Democratic Party understands that our state’s diversity is its greatest strength. That's why we have developed the Diversity Leadership Council program. By working to energize activists from every community throughout Maryland we will truly realize our greatest potential.

MDP Diversity Leadership Councils represent Maryland’s African-American, Latino, Asian & Pacific Islander American, Continental African, Veterans , Women, and LGBT communities.
