Port Covington Development hearing

AFT-Maryland is partnering with a number of labor, community, and religious organizations who are voicing concerns over proposed Port Covington project in Southwest Baltimore. We are not opposed to the project per se, but we need to ensure the development benefits everyone in the city, not just a wealthy few.

Israel Cultural Exchange

AFT-Maryland President Marietta English joined with other AFT national officers and representatives for a visit to Israel. There, they participated in a cultural exchange about best practices in educating young people. The trip had significant importance as the group also engaged with students and teachers at Jerusalem’s Hand-in-Hand School.  The school promotes integration and tolerance among the Arab and Jewish residents of Israel.
