Central Chapter

The Central Chapter of Empower Missouri is proud to be based in the capitol of Missouri. Because of this, we tend to focus on legislative issues and what is happening in the Missouri legislature. From public educational forums to monthly meetings, we are an active group of volunteers who are dedicated to social justice issues.
