Do you think the fact that people are working remotely will make them more inclined to get involved in election-related activities? Its hard to tell as it really depends on their personal situation.I know that many people are juggling the demands of childcare, remote learning and other challenges, so I think it will be different for different people depending on their circumstances.Hopefully, having the day off will make it easier at least to vote.Is this something that you plan to do every four years? I certainly hope that the Policy Committee will approve doing this again four years from now and beyond. Your hope was to get others in the legal community involved in this effort. What has the reception been among other law firms and how can Mintz alumni get involved? Ive spoken with a handful of managing partners at other law firms and the response has been very positive. Some of those law firms have already joined in. I think judging by recent stories in publications like American Lawyer and Bloomberg, there is some momentum behind this effort. My hope is that all law firms will do it. I think that would have a significant impact on the vote.5'
