Hi again, friends!
Since we started sharing Grace's story, we have been overwhelmed by people asking how they can help. Obviously sharing our story helps, but we have something more concrete, which I personally love: I am thrilled when I get a specific action that can help a cause that is important to me. And at this moment in my life, nothing is more important to me than being able to make the right medical decisions for myself and my very, very loved family.
Tomorrow (Thursday, September 28th) I will be at The Royale with NARAL ProChoice Missouri discussing my family's story, our journey and frustrations becoming advocates, and what everyone that hears it and asks 'how can I help?' can do, which is help with the bipartisan ballot initiative: Clean MO.
What’s Clean MO? Some of the initiatives include:
- Require that legislative records be open to the public
- Require politicians to wait two years before becoming lobbyists
- Eliminate almost all lobbyist gifts in the General Assembly
- Lower campaign contribution limits for state legislative candidates
- Ensure that neither political party is given an unfair advantage when new maps are drawn after the next census
If this is something that you feel would be good for Missouri (again, it's bipartisan! It's designed to make our democracy work more fairly!) please come out to The Royale tomorrow (Thursday, 6:00PM). I will be talking about why I think this is important and how all of you can help in getting Clean MO on the ballot next year. No matter what the cause that's closest to your heart is, this ballot initiative helps make sure laws are more fair and our politicians truly represent us.
You can learn more about Clean MO here and more about the event (and RSVP!) here:
Join NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri on Thursday, September 28th at the Royale for a happy hour to meet the people leading the CLEAN Missouri ballot initiative...
