Co-Organizing Director Job Announcement


Amendment 1 & Prop B Passed!

The journey to raise the minimum wage and to clean up Missouri politics became reality on November 6th! Missourians were fed up with politicians being more accountable to special interests and corporations than to working people in this state. It was a long road, but it was all worth it when Amendment 1 and Proposition B passed!

THANK YOU! To everyone who carried a petition, knocked doors, made phone calls, signed a petition, chipped in or talked to their friends and family on behalf of these campaigns, it worked. This was a grassroots effort, with over 1200 people working together. This victory was only made possible by the hard work and dedication of our incredible volunteers.

We won on Prop A in August and now on Prop B and Amendment 1. We are sending a clear message: When we put working families first in Missouri, WE WIN!

CLEAN Missouri & Raise Up Missouri Qualified

It’s official, CLEAN Missouri and Raise Up Missouri have officially qualified and will be on the ballot in November!  Because of the hard work of volunteers across the state, Missouri is changing and will raise its minimum wage and begin to get big money out of politics.

Our volunteers gathered an astounding 81,000 signatures for CLEAN Missouri and 55,000 signatures for Raise Up Missouri.  This was the largest volunteer signature gathering program in Missouri history!

Now we begin the important work of educating and engaging voters across the state leading up to the election.

The Defeat of Prop A

We did it! Over a year and a half ago politicians in Jefferson City attacked working families in Missouri when they passed their harmful ‘Right to Work’ law. But working people across the state stood up and fought back. We gathered signatures in every corner of Missouri to put the issue before the voters, we knocked doors, we made phone calls, we organized! It was a lot of work, but it paid off with the defeat of Proposition A!

Proposition A would have been devastating to not only our labor unions, but to all working families in Missouri, and this victory is critical to maintaining worker power. But we know that the Missouri General Assembly is not done attacking us or our unions.  So while we celebrate our awesome victory, we also need to keep the momentum going.

The defeat of Proposition A can be a turning point for Missouri. We’ve shown that when we stand together we can take on corporate power and win; let’s keep the victories for Missouri’s working families coming by passing Amendment 1 and Proposition B in November!
