Get your Dem on this June & July

Young Dems,

We had so much fun at the #MOLEGDebrief last week! Thanks for showing up and staying engaged on the issues. We had a good discussion on the minimum wage battle, voter ID laws, and the 2017 Special Session.

MAD PROPS to our fantastic panel of legislators who fight for our Democratic values in Jefferson City: Sen. Scott Sifton, Rep. Michael Butler, Rep. Jamilah Nasheed, Rep. Peter Merideth, Rep. Cora Faith Walker, and Rep. Bruce Franks. (And thanks to Rep. Josh Peters for coming out to support!)

Another BIG THANK YOU to our moderator: Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director, Emily Waggoner!

We have more summer events for you... learn more below!

Best, Elise
