Right before Purim we are going to get the celebration going by delivering holiday gift bags to our state legislators. Each festive package, following the tradition of mishloach manot, will have sweet treats and a note letting our lawmakers know the issues we care about most: bail reform, rent court reform, raising the minimum wage, and strengthening the Maryland Dream Act.
5:15 pm - Buses leave Baltimore, Silver Spring, and Rockville
6:00 pm - Meet in Annapolis for those coming by car
6:30-8:00 pm - Deliver Packages to Legislators
Meet in the Lowes House Office Building, Rm 143
Kids are welcome. Costumes are encouraged (no masks or pretend weapons). Let's bring some Purim fun to Annapolis!!
Never lobbied before? It's easy, fun, and effective! We'll meet up together beforehand, do a brief training, and then fan out to share stories with our legislators and their staff.
