The time has come to Replant, Regrow, and Revive Annapolis

Annapolis, MD (April 14, 2021), With Earth Day coming up on April 22, the People for Keanuú Smith-Brown campaign proudly announces being endorsed by Sunrise Movement Annapolis.

“I am honored to be endorsed by this organization. Like our campaign, Sunrise is a movement centered around grassroots organizing and building relationships. We connect to our communities by having conversations with neighbors, families, clergy, business leaders, and others,” said Keanuú Smith-Brown. “With the intersectionality of environmental justice, we will propel the voices and needs of our marginalized people especially. And, with committed allies by our side, I look forward to continuing the fight for a clean, green future for Ward 3 and the City of Annapolis.”

“Annapolis needs a Green New Deal now more than ever. At a time when our city is flooding, our air is changing color, and our people are already dealing with this crisis we need a bold leader and legislator,” said Kasey Brown, Sunrise Annapolis Hub Coordinator. “Keanuú Smith-Brown is that person our city needs.”

The endorsement was secured after Smith-Brown shared a preview of his Annapolis City Green Plan with chapter leadership. The plan is scheduled to be released next week. More details coming soon.
