Voter Voice Comes to Missouri

Missioner for Public Advocacy

Thanks to a number of individuals and Mission Groups, the Diocese of Missouri has been able to invest in a legislative rapid response system called Voter Voice. Voter Voice allows all of our missioners and missioner groups to set up automated letter writing campaigns directly to Missouri legislators and other government officials, in keeping with our mission areas, our Baptismal Covenant and our mission as a church.
Much like other rapid response networks with which you might already be familiar, Voter Voice makes it easy for Episcopal advocates to communicate with elected officials in Jefferson City on a range of issues on which our diocese has taken a position and to expand our network of Episcopalians engaged in advocacy for justice and peace.
To sign up for Voter Voice, please take action on at least one of the three Action Alerts below directed to our Missouri House of Representatives. Two Alerts are from the Diocesan Gun Violence Prevention Mission Group and one is from the Diocesan Education Equity Working Group.
You will be asked to enter your contact information and select the issues on which you are willing to take action. As legislation related to those issues advances in the state capitol, you will receive emails with background on the issue, talking points, and a sample letter which you can edit to make it more personal, and send automatically to your elected officials.
We look forward to increasing our advocacy in Jefferson City and living out our Baptismal Covenant and our church mission! Thank you!
