Who We Are
We are Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff and Friends of the University System of Maryland and all Maryland schools. We work or go to school at a college or university within Maryland. We do not support the current policy to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for all members of the school community. Forced consent is not informed consent. It is not consent at all.
We strongly urge USM Chancellor, Dr. Perman, college officials, and Governor Larry Hogan to reverse the egregious mandate and allow our community bodily autonomy. No person should be coerced into any type of medical intervention in order to obtain employment or an equal education in the State of Maryland.
We advocate for equal treatment for those who freely consent to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and those who do not.
We advocate for students to receive equal treatment and equal access to all campus activities, including paid and non-paid internships and research. Employee equality includes unencumbered access to job duties and employment opportunities.
So much is at stake. Stand United Together: United Maryland for Education Equality.

Actions To Take Now!
It only takes a few minutes to lend your voice and invite others to do the same.
Now is the time to hear EVERYONE in one voice say: "Stop the USM Vaccine Mandates!"
Sign and ask EVERYONE you know to also sign. This petition is for everyone who wants to Stop the Mandates for all 12 Colleges and Universities in the University System of Maryland (USM). The mandates impact more than just current students, employees faculty and staff. There are families with K-12 students who are concerned about the USM mandates. There is disparate impact on those who do not have the resources to pursue a degree out of state. The USM Covid19 Vaccine Mandate is a barrier between them and an education at Maryland's publicly funded colleges and universities.
Lend your voice and help raise all of these voices!
