Celebrate Reel and Meal’s 7th Anniversary along with the Green Party!

Vote! logo

We’ll have a delicious birthday cake to celebrate R&M’s birthday!

Join representatives from the Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties Green Party as they explore An End to Lesser-Evil Voting! A series of film clips will be screened to illustrate the major flaws inherent in our electoral system and how one simple solution—Instant Runoff Voting (IRV)—can make a big difference. Takoma Park passed IRV in 2005; come and learn so we can make it happen in Greenbelt.

Come discuss how we can make the democratic voting process accessible and fair for all.

The Midterm Election is right around the corner and it’s an important one.

We’ll register people to vote, too!


Mary Rooker, a long-time Green Party activist, worked on the successful Takoma Park IRV campaign and now serves on the Montgomery County Council’s Right to Vote Task Force.

Mark Miller, Greenbelt Green Party activist and attorney who helped get the Green Party on the state ballot. Mark works as a reference librarian at Montgomery College.
