What can you do? Reach out to Delegate Dumais and offer your support and gratitude for advocating on behalf of these women and children for so many years. Then, call the committee chairmen, Senator Zirkin and Delegate Vallario, who not only schedule the committee meetings, but determine when bills are read on the floor and placed on the vote list. Demand that the Rape Survivor Family Protection Act be priority legislation when the Maryland General Assembly convenes on Wednesday, Jan. 10. Mark it on your calendar. And most importantly, follow up with a phone call. Maryland must learn from the tragedy in Michigan and take immediate action.
