Empower Missouri’s work to eradicate poverty in Missouri is only possible through coalition building and advocacy by an incredible group of supporters, and our Advocacy Awards Brunch is an opportunity to highlight a few of that group and celebrate our collective work. Each summer, we gather our community (rotating between the eastern and western sides of the state) to enjoy a delicious brunch and celebrate our Advocates of the Year. Our 2023 event was held in Kansas City, and you can view a few photos here. Our 2024 Advocacy Awards Brunch will be held in St. Louis on Saturday, June 29th, and we are thrilled to be celebrating the incredible group of advocates above, chosen to receive this year’s Advocacy Awards.
