Join us for both face-to-face events and our bi-monthly calls about legislation that affects you.
Our guiding principles are:
All people in Missouri should have true access to quality healthcare, decent housing, adequate nutrition and appropriate education. Our state should fully fund, fully implement and/or fully supplement, as appropriate, state and federal programs for health and mental health services, housing and homelessness services, food assistance programs, and all levels of public education.
All people in Missouri should be treated with dignity and fairness, and share on a just basis in the responsibilities and benefits of the prosperity of our society. Our state should emphasize restorative alternatives to our punitive corrections system, build a welcoming and inclusive 21st Century social climate free of hate and prejudice, fully support policies that empower people to overcome their economic circumstances, and require all to pay their fair share in support of the common good.
Founded in 1901, we have been a faithful voice for evidence-based public policy that supports social justice. Some of our most important victories in the 20th Century included:
