MARYLAND: No More Confederate Flag License Plates!

To be delivered to Pete Rahn, Maryland Secretary of Transportation, Milton Chaffee, Maryland Motor Vehicle Administrator, Adam Dubitsky, Maryland Governor's Director of Policy, and Governor Larry Hogan

Petition Statement

It's time to get rid of Confederate flag license plates in Maryland. The Supreme Court just ruled that specialty license plates are a form of government speech, and this symbol of racism and hatred should not be endorsed by the state of Maryland.
There are currently 7,741 signatures. NEW goal - We need 10,000 signatures!

Petition Background

For many Marylanders, the Confederate flag is reasonably and uniquely identified with the history of slavery, white supremacy, and racial violence. In the 20th century, after Brown v. Board of Education was decided, the flag was resurrected as a symbol of Jim Crow segregation and violent opposition to the civil rights movement. Given the Supreme Court's ruling that Confederate flag license plates are government speech, Maryland should not endorse this symbol of hate.
