Statewide Day of Action this Saturday, July 15, to let voters decide RTW repeal

We Are Missouri, the campaign to repeal the so-called “right-to-work” bill signed by Governor Eric Greitens in February, is hosting another Day of Action to collect petition signatures to place the measure on the ballot.

The Day of Action this Saturday, July 15, will involve canvassing in small groups of volunteers to encourage registered Missouri voters to sign the petition to place so-called “right-to-work” on the ballot so voters – not politicians – have the final say about this legislation that will hurt Missouri’s workers, their families, and our communities.

Volunteers should meet at the locations listed below, at the designated start times to receive a campaign update and some training before canvassing for signatures.
