My name is Alex Levine Clardy and I’m PROMO’s new Development Manager. I began working at PROMO one month ago and immediately jumped into the chaos of SJR 39 that the Missouri legislature started. I have seen first hand the way SJR 39 has affected people physically and mentally during this process, and can’t begin to imagine how the LGBT population of Missouri would be affected if SJR 39 goes to a statewide vote and is passed. We are in the middle of a crucial fight for our civil rights and need to spread the word about how SJR 39 would truly influence the lives of LGBT Missourians.
There are three ways that I ask of you and your extended networks right now to help us stop SJR 39 before it passes through the legislative process.
- Purchase a ticket ASAP to URBANAIRE, PROMO’s annual fundraiser taking place at Union Station on May 7th. Local St. Louis restaurants and bars that support equality will be sponsoring URBANAIRE with unlimited food and drink.
- Donate $39 to help PROMO defeat SJR 39!
- Become a monthly sustaining donor to PROMO. Whether it is $5, $10, or $20 a month, your gift will continually help PROMO advocate on behalf of LGBT Missourians.
I want to also thank all of the businesses that will be supporting URBANAIRE this year:
Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, The Doubletree Hotel at Saint Louis Union Station, Covene, Vytl, the St. Louis Regional Chamber, Express Scripts, Goliath Trucking, Ameren, Bryan Cave, the David Bohnett Foundation, Edward Jones, Four Muddy Paws, G. Ink, HOK, the Missouri Foundation for Health, Polsinelli, Vorhees Law, Portica Realty, Anheuser-Busch, Barefoot Bubbly, London Vodka, #BOOM Magazine, The Vital VOICE, Sauce Magazine, the RiverFront Times, and Yelp.
