Join a Coalition

To drive progress in our priority areas, Empower Missouri convenes three statewide coalitions: Affordable Housing, Community Justice, and Food Security. These areas represent the core of our work because of the deep connection each has to all aspects of poverty.

Becoming a member of one of our coalitions means that you’ll be a part of network of more than 100 individuals and organizations that are finding solutions to solve some of the state’s biggest challenges – from housing reforms to poverty alleviation to criminal justice reform.

We can only prevent poverty by acting together on a statewide scale. Let’s demand that our policymakers recognize the drivers of poverty in Missouri and advance legislation that will put an end to it. Join a coalition today!
