MARYLAND STATE

Every year JUFJniks from Baltimore, Montgomery County, and across the state of Maryland join forces to fight for justice during the 90 days of the General Assembly session. We bring Purim gifts to legislators while we demand that they work for the people, not for corporate lobbyists.
