Empower Missouri works to secure basic human needs and equal justice for every person in our state through coalition-building and advocacy.


We envision a Missouri in which all people have food, shelter, and justice.


  • Adequate nutrition, affordable housing, and equal justice are essential for Missouri’s success.
  • All structural oppressions are recognized, challenged, and dismantled.
  • Evidence-based public policy is foundational for those who govern.
  • The lawmaking process is truly accessible to all in our state.
