The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of Maryland (UULM-MD) is a statewide advocacy network of Unitarian Universalists. We work to educate, mobilize, and coordinate UUs on specific issues before the Maryland General Assembly. Working in coalition with established state and national organizations, we as UUs model a reverence for the interdependent web of all existence which fosters justice, health and equity in society. We encourage you to join us on this journey as we engage Marylanders, expand freedom and nurture an inclusive, life affirming system of government. Read more.
The Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of Maryland wholeheartedly supports SB 676/HB021, entitled the "Death with Dignity Act". In keeping with the basic civil rights of Marylanders, this bill honors the dignity of the life of an individual. This bill creates a process by which a “qualified patient” may request and receive “aid in dying” from the patient’s attending physician within strict guidelines. While the bill exempts from civil or criminal liability state-licensed physicians who act in compliance with specified safeguards, it clearly includes criminal penalties for violating the provisions of the bill. Such protections administer a respectful responsiveness to a clear need within the constituency.

To follow a particular bill, on the Home page, insert the number of the bill in the box indicated. Once you are on the bill page, you will see a brief summary of the provisions of the bill, the name of the committee that is hearing the bill and you can follow it's progress by going to "History."

The Washington Post Review, 1/20/2013: "It's easy to see why so many Washingtonians flocked to hear pianist Brian Ganz present an all-Chopin recital Sunday evening at the Music Center at Strathmore."
The Washington Post Review, 7/31/13: "Chopin devotee Brian Ganz is elegant, earnest at Washington International Piano Festival."
Mr. Ganz is widely regarded as one of the leading pianists of his generation. He has appeared as a soloist with such orchestras as the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the St. Louis Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, the National Philharmonic, the National Symphony and the City of London Sinfonia.
Four years ago, Mr. Ganz began his "Extreme Chopin" quest to perform all of Frederic Chopin's works. His sold out recital at the Music Center at Strathmore launched his ambitious endeavor to perform all 250 of Chopin's works over the next decade. He will be playing music by Frederic Chopin and Claude Debussy on April 25th.
This event is in support of UULM-MD and its work to coordinate the advocacy of UUs on specific issues before the Maryland General Assembly.
UULM-MD is working in coalition with the Maryland Alliance for Justice Reform (MAJR) to address the problem of mass incarceration in Maryland. Our goals include:
