I oftentimes hear from equality supporters, advocates and allies, “What can I do to make a difference? How can I make my voice be heard?” Both of those feats can be accomplished at PROMO’s Equality Day, tomorrow, Wednesday, April 20th. At Equality Day, your voice will be heard by several legislators, helping to make a difference in creating a more inclusive, equitable Missouri.
Equality Day brings together champions of equality to work alongside one another and speak with state legislators about bills that directly impact Missouri’s LGBT community. For this April’s Equality Day, we will be discussing SJR 39.
Although we have multiple organizations, coalition partners and lobbyists working each and every day in the Missouri State Capitol, legislators want to hear from YOU. They want to hear from their constituents that their actions and decisions personally impact each and every day. They want to hear your stories, your experiences and your understanding about why passing bill like SJR 39 are bad for business, bad for the economy, and make Missouri an unwelcoming state.
Registration will begin at 9am in Hearing Room 2. The rally will begin at 10:30am in the First Floor Rotunda. Please join us for the rally where PROMO, the ACLU of Missouri and special guest Michael Sam will be speaking against harmful, anti-LGBT legislation and how you can stand with us. Home base will be in the Third Floor Senate Alcove. Join us there for snacks, drinks and to discuss with us any questions or experiences you had when speaking with legislators.
I certainly hope you will consider joining PROMO and several of our coalition partners for our annual Equality Day. Even though we are physically present in the Missouri State Capitol each week of session, it is your voice and your partnership that will help make everlasting change in Missouri.
