Tell Maryland to stop weaponizing rap lyrics: Pass the PACE Act!

The issue

The Protecting the Admissibility of Creative Expression Act (PACE) (HB 1429/SB 662) aims to limit the use of artistic expression in court. It is particularly crucial for hip-hop artists, whose expression is increasingly weaponized against them, rendering them more susceptible to notions of inherent criminality.

Consequently, Black artists become particularly vulnerable to heightened exposure to the criminal justice system.
