JUFJ and Communities United will be coming together to host a phonebanking event on Feb 13th in support of a strong, clean minimum wage bill. Come anytime between 2 and 8 to lend a hand!

More than 600,000 Maryland workers work full-time but don’t earn enough to make ends meet. A $15 minimum wage means a better Maryland for all of us. Raising the wage would lift hundreds of thousands of families out of poverty, create new customers and profits for local businesses, and strengthen our neighborhoods.

Please come phonebank to help us achieve this victory!
