We Are Missouri announces ‘No on Prop A’ campaign kickoff
We Are Missouri is kicking off the “No On A” campaign to defeat so-called “right-to-work” with rallies and trainings throughout the state starting Feb. 19. This is an opportunity to join the fight to defeat this phony anti-worker law and find out more about the consequences of so-called “right-to-work” (RTW) for every Missourian.
At this time, the measure is expected to appear on the Aug. 7 election ballot.
CEO’s and anonymous out-of-state donors are pouring millions of dollars into Missouri to promote RTW and its devastating impact on middle-class families. Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and his dark money Super PAC “A New Missouri” are determined to protect this anti-worker legislation at all costs. We won’t win this fight based on money alone.
Our campaign will be won door-to-door and face-to-face by talking to our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers about what “right-to-work” will do to them and the impact it will have on working Missourians.
This is your opportunity to join We are Missouri and show Gov. Greitens and his corrupt cronies the people of Missouri are not going to let special interests and corporations drive down our wages and standard of living to pad their pockets or buy them another vacation home.
Attend one of the following rallies to learn more about the campaign and how you can help.
