PROMO is a proud member of the Equality Federation, a network of statewide LGBT equality advocacy organizations across the country.
We identify LGBT rights supporters, educate them on the issues, give them the tools and the confidence to participate in the political process, and get results. PROMO's goals are to help LGBT Missourians create a supportive and visible community, become active in the democratic process, and work for their equal protection under the law. We build community awareness and grassroots support for LGBT equality and increase civic participation of LGBT Missourians.
The board, staff, and members of PROMO believe that our legislative and electoral work, along with PROMO Fund's community education and grassroots organizing efforts, will not only succeed in making legislative changes that eliminate legal sanctions against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community; but will also reduce ignorance of and animosity toward LGBT individuals. A shift in the Missouri laws, from a system flawed with fundamental injustices to one that truly embraces the concept of equality for all citizens, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, will put us one step closer to a society where all voices are heard and all people are free. PROMO is dedicated to the belief that equality and personal liberty can be a reality through ongoing, systematic grassroots community organizing, and we will continue to strive toward that vision, one step at a time.
