At Missouri Jobs with Justice we recognize that we need an economy and democracy that work for all of us; no matter the color of our skin or the zip code that we live in. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown both into crisis– and we are responding to the call.
Two weeks ago we hosted the first in a series of webinars that will frame our grassroots response to this crisis.
That webinar focused on efforts to fix our economy. We celebrated our success with Medicaid expansion signature collection and launched our campaign to expand access to unemployment insurance. More than 150 people participated in this webinar and these participants were channeled into tangible action.
On Tuesday, April 7th, we will host another webinar; this one will focus on efforts to protect and expand access to democracy in Missouri.
Join St. Louis Workers Rights Board leader Denise Lieberman of the Missouri Voter Protection Coalition, Action St. Louis’ Executive Director Kayla Reed and myself, MOJwJ Policy Director Richard von Glahn, as we discuss what we can do to protect our democracy now, and potential reforms that can strengthen access to democracy for all Missourians.
We will discuss steps we can take to ensure that all eligible Missourians can register and vote without compromising their health and safety in this time of social distancing, the importance of Census 2020, and the urgent need to modernize Missouri’s election technologies and procedures.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 7th for this important discussion.
We will be using Zoom. Please RSVP for either our 2:00 PM Webinar or 6:00 PM Webinar – the content will be the same for both.
