- A continuing effort is being made with Governor Wes Moore with direct conversations with Deputy Chief of Staff Lucinda Ware and Senator Mary Washington at the MD State Legislature to ensure inclusion of LGBTQ+ Businesses in Maryland through the hopeful 2023 passing of Imari’s Business Pride Act which would recognize LGBTBE’s with the State of Maryland Minority Business Enterprises.
- As the recently passed Respect for Marriage Act highlights, we have won some battles but we must continue to be vigilant as we are seeing our rights at risk every day. The Chamber will have an increased visibility in the advocacy space going forward. We look forward to working with our partners in the community to get this accomplished.
- We have officially changed our name to the Maryland LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce! We have added the “Q+” to be more inclusive of all identities and to better represent the way our membership identifies.
Thanks to our sponsors and our members who are so important to the chamber. Because of you, we can accomplish anything we set our mind to!
