Subject: Missouri Needs Your Help
|Valued Member, can we count on you to stand up for our friends and family in Missouri?
The NAACP last week issued a travel advisory for the state of Missouri calling for all African-American travelers, visitors, and locals to exercise extreme caution given the recent series of concerning, race-based incidents throughout the “Show Me State.”
Black Missourians need your uncompromising support to fight back against assaults on their civil rights and civil liberties.
Help show me a state where African Americans are no more likely to be stopped and searched by police than their white counterparts.
Show me a state where African Americans are free to travel any road they wish without fear for their safety.
Show me a state without Jim Crow-style legislation preventing individuals from protecting themselves from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Show me a state where freedom and justice are common to all.
Or any amount of your choice.
Thank you for your support,
Interim President and CEO
