Be the Change With MCU: Week of May 22

Municipal Elections on Tuesday, June 2: School Board and More!

Voting, particularly in local elections, shapes our communities. On Tuesday, June 2 serveral school boards and city governments will elect new or retain current members. There are bond issues on some of the ballot. 

Get educated on what you’ll be voting for HERE and then, for the love of all that is good, get out (or stay in) and VOTE! Your vote matters.

Amendment 1 Threatened at the Ballot Box

On this edition of “I can’t believe we have to defend this!,” get ready to defend your hard work on Clean Missouri / Amendment 1.

SJR38 / Dirty Missouri has the ability to gut #CleanMissouri. After all those signatures we collected and all the doors we knocked on, Amendment 1 passed in every district in the state, but some in our Missouri legislature love gerrymandering so much that they created a bill to make us re-vote on what we already decided!

Tell your state representative and senator that you know what you voted for the first time: to clean up Missouri’s maps, not re-dirtify them! #RespectOurVote #EndGerrymanderingNow #NODirtyMissouri

Our Drive By Protest Opened Eyes and Ears

We got loud on May 4 with our Protest Parade past the DYS Hogan Center. Our community’s youth need justice, and particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, need to be safe at home with their families.

Our families don’t have the support they really need. Tell a family you know they have a voice and it needs to be heard!:
