Advocacy - Speaking up for Low-Income Missourians

Advocacy – We tracked nearly 100 bills within the elements of poverty: Food, Health, Education, Housing & Energy, and Family & Economic Security. Our legislative priorities were Medicaid Expansion and funding for energy programs (Utilicare and Weatherization)… During the session, we hosted a statewide advocacy event that brought nearly 100 of our network members to the Capitol to rally for low-income families and we testified on numerous bills and provided letters of support, opposition, and information – see newsletter for highlights on MACA’s legislative efforts.
