You are the hope

A few days ago I joined hundreds of leaders from across Missouri to deliver a simple message to our state lawmakers as they left for spring break: Do your job. Find a Missouri solution to close the healthcare coverage gap.

Praying and singing together, we made it clear that we will not allow our elected officials to try to ignore the inherent dignity of the 300,000 Missourians who could be saved by Medicaid Expansion.
Unfortunately too many of our politicians remain silent on issues. And every week they refuse to talk about reforming Missouri’s healthcare system, we lose 15 more lives to treatable conditions that would have been covered by Medicaid.
Join us as we continue to raise our voices in the Kansas City metro and demand a moral economy. An economy where everyone has access to opportunity and can care for the health of their family.
  How you will take action with us in the days and weeks to come?
  Rally for Medicaid Expansion Thursday, 3/26 at 12:30pm. On the sidewalk in front of Wal-Mart, 10300 E Highway 350, Raytown Sen. Kraus agrees there is a problem: people are sick and dying because they lack access to health care. But he is unwilling to name the obvious solution, and support Medicaid expansion. Time is running out. His silence is killing us. Join us as we rally across from his church and call out Sen. Kraus for standing on the wrong side of this issue. It’s time to have the debate and expand Medicaid.

Thank you for putting faith in action,   Alice, Andrew, Kathryn, Rev. Taylor, Rev. McCann, and the rest of the CCO team
