KNOW WHO IS REPRESENTING YOU —–DON’T BE IN THE DARK
Reminder – Look up your state and federal electeds HERE.
If you don’t know who represents you, then what can I say?. These are the people making policy decisions which affect you. And while you’re at it, strongly encourage your friends to learn too.
WHO ARE WE EXACTLY?
ProgressWomen began as a project December 2014 through my office after women kept asking “What can I do to get involved politically?” We are now a collective of over 1000 women statewide (and growing) who are sick and tired of attacks on women & families in Missouri, in so many ways.
You’ve heard this before – “it’s going to take a village”. Tired of their nonsense? You in?
