“Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble. Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it because it is not guaranteed. You can lose it.”
“Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.” John Lewis NYT
Civil rights icon John Lewis made his final journey across the Edmund Pettus Bridge and was laid to rest in Atlanta last week. Let us honor his memory and sacrifice by making sure we exercise our right to VOTE on Tuesday, August 4!
EXPAND MEDICAID - VOTE YES ON 2!
“If the past few months have shown us anything, it’s that access to health care is more important now than ever. It’s past time for Missouri to join the 37 other states to embrace Medicaid expansion, including our neighbors in Oklahoma, who did so in late June. On Tuesday, vote yes on 2.” Terry Reese, President of the Missouri Nurses Association The Missouri Times Aug 2
