Sen. Tracy McCreery (District 24), Sen. Doug Beck (District 1), and Rep. Bridget Walsh Moore (HD-93) will give the inside scoop on the 2024 legislative session and answer your questions.
Following the speakers, candidates in attendance will give introductions. They’ll have yard signs for you to host. (A donation to their campaign is encouraged.)
As we are always caring for our neighbors, please bring a package of diapers or period products for the St. Louis Area Diaper Bank. Both are still taxed at a “luxury” rate in MO due to inaction from the GOP supermajority.
