Government is to preserve and protect the common good. The Missouri Senate will hold a hearing tomorrow to determine if we will reintroduce Jim Crow era legislation that would allow discrimination in Missouri.

Senator Brad Lager will have his bill that legalizes and legitimizes discrimination in Missouri heard by committee on Tuesday 2/22/2011 at 3 PM.

SB 188 - Lager - Modifies the law relating to the Missouri Human Rights Act and employment discrimination

Examine the bill for yourself -

Join the voices in opposition to this measure. This is the only opportunity for public comment that the Missouri Senate will provide. If you support fundamental American values such as fair play, equality, and justice then come in person, send a representative from your church or civic group, or submit written opposition to this measure.

Without your voice, someone might get the idea that we approve of this measure or that this is where we want America to go. It maybe the most important hour in civil rights Missouri can produce.

This evening, the Jefferson City NAACP will meet at Lincoln University in room 117 to hear concerns voiced by its members and individuals from the community about HB 205 and SB 188 - the two bills advanced by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce that would legalize discrimination between individuals.

  1. You know, I think its ironic how the NAACP wants the "people" to support the "NAACP" agenda here and yet, the NAACP has routinely been blowing off my requests for it to help protect people with disabilties.

    I'm not saying the people should not stand up against the employment Bill.. but what I am saying is the NAACP should stop living in a world that revolves only around its agenda's.

    There is a major battle going on right now and two newspapers, Columiba Daily Tribune, and the St. Joseph News Press will be breaking the stroy in a very short time. But every effort I have made to get the NAACP involved has been blown off by those running local NAACP chapters.
