THE BLACK AGENDA
The Black Agenda is not just a single policy for John, it’s a lens through which he views every part of his platform.
FIGHTING THE CLIMATE CRISIS
From Promise To Progress: John King’s Plan to Make Maryland a Leader in Fighting Climate Change.
As a lifelong educator, John knows that ensuring every student in Maryland has a world-class public education is the key to building a more equitable state.
A MARYLAND ECONOMY THAT WORKS FOR ALL
A thriving Maryland economy requires making sure every Marylander – urban, suburban or rural; Black, brown, or white; born wealthy or poor – has the chance to live up to their full potential.
BUILDING WOMEN'S ECONOMIC EQUITY
A King-Siri administration will work to undo the current inequity that is steeped into the system and build a strong, equitable economy.
STUDENT DEBT RELIEF AND COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY
Education will be a top priority for John’s administration, and as the next governor of Maryland, John will be committed to making sure that college is affordable for Marylanders.
John believes that health care is a human right. While Maryland’s unique health care system has had its fair share of successes, serious barriers to care and equity gaps remain.
John has heard concerns about housing from Marylanders across the state and will take a holistic approach to tackling the housing crisis by building housing policy around supply, stability, and subsidy.
John will be a champion for equitable, accessible, and smart public transit that faces the Climate Crisis head on.
AN ALLY TO MARYLAND WOMEN
Maryland women — especially Black women — face unique and significant challenges. John knows that they need leadership that will prioritize their needs and promote bold solutions to the issues they face.
SUPPORTING IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES
John knows that immigrants are essential members of their communities, driving forces to Maryland’s economy, and contribute greatly to the cultural vibrancy of our state.
John believes wholeheartedly that LGBTQ+ Marylanders of all ages deserve to live safe, prosperous, and affirming lives; and he’s committed to ensuring that LGBTQ+ people, especially LGBTQ+ people of color, have the protections and support they need in Maryland.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
Maryland’s prison population has the worst racial disparities in the country by a wide margin, incarcerating a higher rate of young Black men than any other state. John will take bold steps to correct this injustice.
