The vision of the Maryland Black Republican Council is to have Black Marylanders choose to vote Republican based on their exposure to Republicans and to Republican ideas which will improve their families, communities, schools, and government.
The mission of the Black Republican Council includes these goals:
• To be a stepping stone between the Republican Party and Black Americans
• To help Black Americans see their natural alliance with the Republican Party
• To promote conservative values in Black homes and communities
• To provide a forum where Black conservatives can gather, and where curious others can learn
