Maryland Sierra Club just endorsed US

"Dear Mr. Kalyanaraman,

Congratulations!  You have been formally endorsed by the MD Chapter of the Sierra Club for your pledge to support an environmental agenda in the state legislature.  With our current President supporting rollbacks of clean water and air regulations, and denying climate change, it is important for Maryland’s legislature to stand strong for these protections.  We appreciate your support more than ever...

... Now please go out there and win your race - we need you in the legislature!"

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America...

I was recently given the Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction for my stance on stronger solutions to gun laws and loopholes. Moms Demand Action was established after the Sandy Hook School tragedy, and it is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country. Thank you for your support!

I just got my 3rd big endorsement - Our Revolution Maryland!

On April 11, I was endorsed by Our Revolution Maryland! Our Revolution is a national network of community activists committed to policies that serve our communities, not far-off corporations. Maryland's chapter has been front and center on issues like universal health care and a minimum wage increase. I'm honored to have a new ally in my work to address poverty and improve the health and safety for everyone in our neighborhoods. 

Baltimore Sun article on synthetic opioid rise

At Health Care For the Homeless, addiction counselors are warning clients about the new drug now that it has appeared in Maryland.

"One of our major messages to clients is you don't know what is being cut into the heroin," said Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, the group's chief health officer. "You need to be careful because your chances of overdosing are higher depending on what they put into it."
