06/22/20 - Missouri Mondays - “Let’s stop thinking that our voices don’t matter and VOTE!”
A week after his brother George was killed by Minneapolis police, Terrence Floyd called on protesters across the country, “Let’s do this another way. Let’s stop thinking that our voice don’t matter and vote. Educate yourself and know who you’re voting for and that’s how we gonna hit ‘em. Because it’s a lot of us. It’s a lot of us. It’s a lot of us.”
We are facing the most important elections of our lifetime in the midst of a deadly virus pandemic, but Gov. Parson, Secretary of State Ashcroft, and the GOP majority in the Missouri legislature refused to make voting easier and safer for every Missourian. Why don’t they want you to vote? Let’s stop thinking that our voices don’t matter and VOTE like our rights depend on it! SHARE THIS and help spread the word!

YES ON AMENDMENT 2 - MEDICAID EXPANSION ON THE BALLOT AUGUST 4
Hard working Missourians need access to healthcare and the chance to bring our tax dollars home from DC. By bringing our tax dollars home, we can protect thousands of frontline healthcare jobs, help keep rural hospitals open, and deliver healthcare to Missourians who earn less than $18,000 a year including thousands of veterans and their families, those nearing retirement, working women who don’t have access to preventive care, and other hardworking Missourians whose jobs don’t provide health insurance.
