Boards, Committees and Commissions The Montgomery County Commission for Women is both an advisory board to, and a department of, county government. The Commission’s primary focus is to improve women’s lives through: 1. Identifying inequities in laws, policies, practices and procedures and; 2. Providing recommendations that promote remedies. The Commission is staffed by an Executive Director who works with a 15-member citizen advisory panel. Commissioners are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council to serve three-year terms, without compensation.

Differing Historical Perspectives on Slavery in Maryland and the District of Columbia

Events James H. Johnston from Montgomery History discusses how slavery in the Washington D.C. area evolved differently from other areas, due to the crops being grown, and the diverse nature of Washington. Slavery in the Washington area was different. It began the same - in the late 1600s - but it soon changed. By the time of the Civil War, Washington D.C. still had slaves, but they lived among a population of free African Americans. Author James H. Johnston will discuss this, and more perspectives on slavery that emerge from his two books, 'The Recollections of Margaret Loughborough,' about a daughter of the Old Dominion of Virginia, and 'From Slave Ship to Harvard,' which follows six generations of an African American family in Maryland.

Maryland Federal Nutrition Benefits (SNAP/EBT + eWIC) Best Practices Training

Events Welcoming federal nutrition benefits like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP/EBT) or the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) at Maryland farmers markets, farm stands, and CSAs are a crucial part of ensuring that locally-grown, fresh food is accessible to everyone in our communities. However, the logistics of offering these benefits at markets or direct-marketing farmers can be challenging. Please join the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission in partnership with MarketLink for a discussion of best practices that will help avoid at least some of these challenges, and help you be better prepared when issues do arise.
