Presented by Co-Hosts: Missouri Jobs with Justice, Heartland Alliance for Progress, and Indivisible KC
Missouri Jobs with Justice, along with the Heartland Alliance for Progress and Indivisible KC, hosted a public town hall meeting to demand our elected officials protect the Affordable Care Act. We invited Senator Roy Blunt, Senator Claire McCaskill, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, and Mayor Sly James to attend and hear testimony by those who will be negatively affected if the ACA is repealed. Unfortunately, none of the aforementioned officials made appearances.

Town Hall Riddle
Q: How do you tell Cardboard Yoder and Congressman Yoder apart? A: Cardboard Yoder is as responsive to constituent concerns as Congressman Yoder, but he holds more town halls.
Indivisible KC, in partnership with Indivisible LFK, hosted a public town hall meeting to ask our elected officials to protect the Affordable Care Act. We invited Senators Moran & Roberts and Congresspersons Yoder & Jenkins to attend and answer questions from the public regarding the repeal of the ACA on access to healthcare services. Since our Members of Congress didn't attend, we invited constituents to share stories and comments about the ACA.
This January 29th we participated in an expansive event that brought together organizations, charities, service groups, and other agencies all under one roof. It was an opportunity for the public to hear directly on “what YOU can DO NOW.” The Progressive Social Network of KC welcomed a variety of groups at this open house style event, and attendees were able to get information and even sign up to join and/or volunteer with groups.
