Former gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur launches group to bridge political divisions

Friday, 13 October 2017, 12:27:32 AM. Heather Mizeur’s “MizMaryland: Soul Force Politics” nonprofit is partly a philosophical movement, partly advocacy training for people who want to work on social justice issues and don’t know how. 
After Heather Mizeur lost the Democratic primary race for governor in 2014, she retreated to her farm on the Eastern Shore for more than two years, leaving behind a political life she had been building since she was a teenager. On Wednesday, she re-emerged on the Maryland political scene with a new organization that has the goal of bridging the political divisions in society. “My sense is that we are feeling worn down and there's almost a desperation, no matter what side of the political divide you're on,” Mizeur said. “We're tired as a country of being at each other's throats. And what's the way out of it? I'm excited to offer at least my version of one long drink of water.” Mizeur’s “MizMaryland: Soul Force Politics” nonprofit is partly a philosophical movement, partly advocacy training for people who want to work on social justice issues and don’t know how.
