About Brenna Vega

When I was 16, I served as a Congressional Page in the U.S. House of Representatives. I went in expecting to get a firsthand view of the legislative process but left in frustration at the lack of actual dialogue between our nation's leaders. After spending most of my early adult years avoiding politics like the plague, my dad reminded me that if any of this was going to change in my lifetime, I needed to stop complaining and start doing. As an advocate for a universal basic income (UBI) and finding myself politically homeless due to the seismic shift in the Republican Party, I signed up the next day for the Forward Party. I'm a firm believer in the need to modernize our civic mechanisms through open primaries and nonpartisan districting to make sure our government works for the people and not the other way around.

    We will reach 17,000 signatures with your help! 

    Volunteer with us at Hagerstown Pride to help collect petition signatures. We need help both in front of the table to talk with people and behind the table with data entry.

    This movement is powered entirely by volunteers just like you. Celebrate Pride and support the Forward Party by helping us show the people of Hagerstown that we care about their voice.

    WHO: You! Forward Party volunteers

    WHAT: Talking to people OR helping with data entry for petition signatures at Hagerstown Pride.

    WHEN: Saturday, July 13, 2024 at 12:00pm

    WHERE: Doubs Woods Park, Hagerstown, MD

    WHY: To collect signatures to make Forward an officially recognized political party in Maryland, and to let our fellow Marylanders know who we are and what we stand for.

    We will have a table and tent set up at the festivities in Doubs Woods Park. Setup will begin at 11:00am, and the festival goes from noon to 5:00pm. Volunteers are free to stay for either all or part of it. We will do a debrief at the end and perhaps get a drink together at a local establishment.

    Bring your phone, a water bottle, sunscreen, and backup power for your phone. You can pack a lunch if you would like, but we will have snacks and there will also be food vendors at and near the event.
