Candidates

Missouri NOW actively encourages progressive people to run for all levels of government – from School Board to statewide – because we recognize that we need progressives at different levels government. If you are interested in running, we would like to know. We team with other progressive organizations (e.g., Missouri Pro-Vote, National Women's Political Caucus) to provide campaign training. Our members actively participate on our endorsed candidates' campaigns – from door knocking to GOTV, our members have assisted numerous candidates.

While we cheer and support our progressive men senators and representatives, we (along with other members of the Missori Women's Network) stand for more progressive women senators and representatives in Jefferson City. This document makes the issue clear. How can we claim equality when less than a quarter of our lawmakers are women? NOW advocates nothing less and nothing more than equality, but can you imagine if less than a quarter of lawmakers in Jefferson City were men?
