Founder | Step Up Maryland
Charly Carter is an advocate, organizer and political strategist. As founder of Step Up Maryland, she is working to interrupt the political culture that resists new ideas and kowtows to a few powerful special interests. Step Up Maryland is building a new culture of political leadership through education, training and inclusion. Engaging underrepresented communities to identify and recruit potential leaders, Step Up Maryland helps them develop the skills to navigate power structures and become effective advocates for their communities.
