It’s been a challenging year but democracy prevailed in our nation! Despite the pandemic and deliberate attempts to silence us, we made our voices heard at the ballot box electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to lead and unite our nation. As VP Elect Harris said on the evening of their victory, “You chose hope and unity, decency, science and, yes, truth... you ushered in a new day for America.” Yet we know there is still hard work ahead of us especially here in Missouri where the fight for a new direction and better leaders must continue for a while longer.
Because of YOU 2020 has been a historic year for our democracy...THANK YOU! This will be our last Missouri Monday’s for the year. We wish you safe and Happy Holidays and we will be back with another Missouri Mondays CALL TO ACTION in January!
Here’s what you can do to make a difference over the break!
