What you can do for Missourians this week:
Call and thank your school board members and county health department. This week we have seen the harassment of local leaders increase in the wake of AG Schmitt’s lawsuits. These local leaders have been working to protect our communities, thank them for their service.
We worked for ten years to expand Medicaid in Missouri, and now that we have expanded eligibility to an additional 270,000 Missourians we have to ensure they sign up. Missouri has allocated zero dollars in advertising and making sure that Missourians know they can enroll in Medicaid, and that’s why we have to share the news on Facebook and Twitter.
Call Gov. Parson (573) 751-3222 and tell him to forgive the state unemployment overpayments! Through no fault of their own, Missourians who applied for unemployment received overpayments and the Governor is now threatening to garnish wages right before the holiday season. Punishing Missourians for mistakes made by the state is wrong, tell Gov. Parson to forgive the overpayments and let families enjoy their holiday season.
