Join us for an evening with Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the Founder, President, and CEO of Global Policy Solutions and Congressman Cummings' widow, and co-author James Dale. They will discuss Cummings' inspiring book, We're Better Than This.


Baltimore Congressman Elijah Cummings was known for saying "We're better than this." He said it in Baltimore, a city on the verge of explosion over police treatment of citizens. He said it in Congress when microphones were shut down, barring free speech. He said it when the President flaunted his power and ignored the Constitution. He said it when the President resorted to bullying, name-calling and feeding racial divisions. We are better than this. He continued to say it until his final days last October. He said it because he believed we must call out what is wrong and call on our better selves to make things right.
