My name is Mandi Kowalski, and I am the new face on the PROMO team that you will be seeing at events and in our community. I am thrilled to be joining a team of such passionate and talented individuals who have also made it their mission to fight for the rights of those disenfranchised in the state of Missouri.
To me, PROMO isn’t just an organization that represents Missouri’s LGBT community — it educates and empowers people. I am so excited to be part of an organization that directly impacts lives and works to make sure people know how valuable their participation is in this movement and in the work to secure legal protections across the state.
As I get settled in my new role, I am eager to reach out within St. Louis, as well as to the often overlooked communities beyond the I-270 divide. As we all know, LGBT Missourians face a host of challenges in our everyday lives, but we have made significant progress toward LGBT equality. Our work ensures that more and more people agree that we deserve the same opportunities to succeed and care for ourselves and our families. As part of Team PROMO, I aim to continue to make sure LGBT voices from all areas of Missouri are heard. You matter.
It is with much gratitude and respect for my LGBT family in Missouri that I join Team PROMO and get to work for (and with) you!
I look forward to seeing you in the community!
