Happy Fall, y'all!

On Saturday, October 13th from 11:30am - 12:30pm, we'll convene in Manchester at the intersection of 141 & Manchester. We'll have signs, but you're welcome to bring your own that uplift the message that Black Lives Matter. 

Afterwards, please join us at St. Louis Bread Company (14560 Manchester Road) for a community lunch. Our usual lunch spot has been closed for renovations.

WE CAN ANNOUNCEMENT

If you're interested in meeting with a candidate from your district, please e-mail us as wecanstl@gmail.com with the subject "Policing Team Meeting."

  • The lawsuit that the Voting Rights Team has been decided such that voters in Missouri are currently not required to sign an intimidating and confusing statement in order to vote and the Secretary of State can no longer advertise that people need a photo ID to vote in Missouri, because they don't. See our e-mail from earlier this week for more information. Congratulations to Jake, Trish, and other members of the Voting Rights Team for their many, many hours of hard work.
