Greene County Democrats encourage supporters of Medicaid Expansion to join ProVote on Saturday to canvass and ask supporters to call their legislators or to join ProVote on Wednesday to lobby legislators in Jefferson City.

Kay Mills, SW MO organizer for ProVote, sent the following invitation:

We believe closing the coverage gap and giving 300,000 uninsured Missourians access to health insurance is the most important thing Missouri legislators can do this year. This weekend, we are taking that message to communities throughout the state.

Volunteers are need to go canvassing - door-to-door - this Saturday. We will deliver information about Medicaid Expansion and ask supporters to contact their legislators.
Canvassing is easy and fun. We'll provide training and all materials - all you need is a good pair of walking shoes and warm clothes.

ProVote and our partners in the Medicaid Coalition are looking for volunteers in Springfield:

Saturday, January 31: Medicaid Canvasses
WHERE: Greene County Democratic HQ- 1764 S Fremont Ave from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
You can RSVP through Facebook HERE or you can email me: kay@missouriprovote.org.

We also have another opportunity next week to lobby the legislature to expand Medicaid!

Wednesday, February 4: Medicaid Lobby Day at the Capitol
On February 4 we will be highlighting stories of people in the coverage gap. We will organize carpools from Springfield to Jefferson City and if we get enough interest, we will rent vans. If you want to attend, please click HERE and fill out this on-line form.

Here's an opportunity to help ProVote as they help to elect Democrats

Because of the great work ProVote did in 2014, we have received some great news and a new challenge from some very generous ProVote donors! If ProVote can raise an additional $10,000 from our friends and activists, these generous progressives are willing to donate an additional $10,000. That's right, $20,000 total!


Please consider donating today at www.missouriprovote.org. Give a one-time contribution, become a sustaining monthly donor or increase your current monthly giving- to help us meet our goal, continue fighting for progressive issues and elect more progressives up and down the ticket!


In 2014, we worked across the state on key progressive state legislative races. ProVote knocked on over 30,000 doors and made over 5,000 phone calls for our candidates. We were able to help pick-up two previously held non-progressive seats, one state representative and one state senator. Overall, we went 5 for 8 in our targeted races.



Save the Date for Jackson Day, April 10 and 11, 2015.

This year Jackson Day will be at the Oasis Convention Center. 


We are beginning to collect items for the Jackson Day Auction. Popular items are political memorabilia or political books, gift certificates to a favorite restaurant or store, working electronics or jewelry. Please bring anything you'd like to donate by the office.
