The Official

ADOS AF Maryland State Chapter

American Descendants of Slavery Advocacy Foundation Maryland Chapter (ADOS AF MD) is the Maryland state subdivision of the American Descendants of Slavery Advocacy Foundation (ADOS AF). 

The goal of ADOS AF MD is to galvanize ADOS Marylanders around local and state-level issues that impact their quality of life.  Our chapter strives to: 1) build relationships with and provide political education to local communities, 2) advocate for local- and state-level policies affecting ADOS Marylanders and, 3) establish rapport with state and local officials and governmental departments as a way to enhance engagement in the political process for local ADOS communities.
