Now, we’re headed to Frederick, MD to continue growing and building up for meeting with members of the Maryland General Assembly in January. The meeting location HAS CHANGED due to the weather. We will be meeting at MULLINIX PARK in Frederick, Maryland underneath the pavilion in the park.

Mullinix Park is located behind the intersection of Bentz St. and W. All Saints St. On either street, there is a small alley road you will turn onto called Mullinix Alley where there is also parking. If you need help finding this location please call 720-607-8369 or email kris@mdmj.org.
