The day after Purim we are going to keep the celebration going by delivering holiday gift bags to our state legislators. Each festive package, following the tradition of mishloach manot, will remind lawmakers to support the issues we care about most: earned sick leave; police accountability; rent court reform; and gun violence prevention
