MoLeg Update: Defend Fair Maps & Stop Extreme Gerrymandering

We are still very much in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, yet our leaders are working to protect their own power, using this last week of the legislative session to force through a radical gerrymandering scheme. SJR 38 overturns the will of the people and eliminates key reforms that make our democracy work better for all of us. 

Our priority must be keeping people safe and healthy. No matter what you look like or where you live, we all know that our own health depends on the health of the person next to us, and the person next to them. But some politicians and special interests are more interested in keeping their seats than keeping us safe. They want to overturn the will of voters and rig the rules in our constitution so politicians are all protected in safe seats — and can't be held accountable by voters.

The Legislature must adjourn by 6:00 p.m. on Friday — so we must act now. Tell your state representative to respect the will of the voters, protect fair maps and vote NO on SJR 38!

Virtual Phone Bank on Wednesday: Stand Up for Clean Missouri & Reproductive Freedom!

Shout-out to Planned Parenthood Advocates volunteers in Springfield, who spent a collective 29 hours last week calling Missourians and urging them to demand their legislators protect fair maps and stop gerrymandering!

Want an opportunity to shine like these star volunteers? Join us this Wednesday afternoon for another virtual phone bank. The legislative session ends on Friday evening — so now is the time to step up our activism and make sure our elected leaders hear our voices!

Sign up here to volunteer with us Wednesday from noon-3:00 p.m.

If you can’t make it on Wednesday, there are other ways to take action. Email Grassroots Organizer Stacy Sherrod to get plugged in!

Tomorrow: Mrs. America Virtual Watch Party

Join fellow Planned Parenthood supporters from all across Missouri to watch episode three of Mrs. America, which chronicles the fight to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. The leader of the opposition, Phyllis Schlafly, was a conservative activist who was born and raised in St. Louis.

You can catch up on the first two episodes on Hulu (the RSVP has a link for a free trial). Sign up by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday for the virtual watch party and join us tomorrow!
