Simpson for State Delegate

Maurice Simpson, Jr.began his political activism after graduating high school in 2007, working to elect two-term President Barack Obama. He currently serves as President of the Prince George’s County Young Democrats and an At-Large member of the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) Youth Council. Through both roles, Maurice successfully advocated to pass legislation that ended Maryland's practice of holding young people ages 14-17 that are automatically charged as adults in adult jails.

Simpson is a proud graduate of Clark Atlanta University and current law student at the University of Baltimore School of Law. He prides himself on his advocacy initiatives which include: raising the minimum wage, equal funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), juvenile justice and student debt reform, college affordability, and affordable housing.

At the age of 26 and with over 60,000 votes, Maurice was elected one of the youngest Delegates to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. A leader amongst his peers, Maurice continues to expand his platform, serving as a regular political and social commentator on #OffScript with Bruce Johnson on CBS affiliate WUSA 9 and 5 @6:30 on Fox 5 DC, debating current political news and current events.

Maurice’s civic engagement and community leadership has garnered him one of the DMV’s “Top 30 Under 30″ leaders by Radio One’s 93.9 WKYS and “FORTY Under 40” by the Prince George’s County Social Innovation Fund.  Stay connected with Maurice by following him @MauriceforMD on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
