This meeting informed attendees about ballot initiatives happening in Missouri. We also had sign-up opportunities for members who wanted to get involved and/or volunteer.
We welcomed the following speakers: Paul Washington from Missouri Jobs with Justice talked about how unions & workers' rights impact the political landscape in Missouri and why the "Right to Work" repeal ballot initiative matters; Dr. Vernon Howard with KC for $15 discussed the upcoming election on August 8th and the fight to pass a fifteen dollar per hour living wage in Kansas City; And finally, Sean Soendker Nicholson with Clean Missouri explained their ballot initiative and how they propose to get big money out of politics.
This was our first Member Meeting. We gave attendees an overview of what we have accomplished in the last 100 days plus what we are working on for the next 100!
