What if you committed to do one thing this week, every week, for racial or economic justice? Maybe you already do and you can do one more... Here are not one but THREE easy options for you to pick from:
1. Sign and Share thisPetition~ We believe Mayor Lucas needs a political push to ensure new leadership at KCPD so we are offering him this petition, as well as Cathy Dean and Bishop Tolbert. They need to terminate Chief Smith, who helped protect a Sgt. who stood by (or assisted) while a 15 year old kid got assaulted. Read the petition, sign and share. Today's KC Star Editorial offers more info.
2. Attend Our Annual Event or Sponsor It! Are we CRAZY for having a fundraiser in a pandemic? Absolutely... Crazy with enthusiasm for justice... nothing will stop our annual event but this pandemic has certainly changed it. We are selling only 100 more LIVE event tickets at $100 each where you can experience all the trappings of a FUN night out, dinner, drinks, dancing and DISTANCING.
Maybe the LIVE event isn't for you? Then, GUESS WHAT, this is YOUR time to shine at home and celebrate a year with us. For only $35 per person, you can host a HOUSE PARTY where you tune into our LIVE event. You select your meals, pick up a curbside full party in a box, complete with meals tailored to your guests (you only need to warm them), party favors, program books and links to the LIVE event. You can have a House Party for one or ten. You will be supporting Black Owned Businesses and racial justice with every ticket you buy to our event this year! Imagine Building the Beloved Community by tuning in safely from home with a delicious curbside meal for ONLY $35 per person! Buy now!
3. Get Out The Vote! You may have heard, there is an election in November. At MORE2, we care a lot about this democracy and we think you do, too. So, we encourage you to talk with your group, whether it is a congregation, organization or small team and then contact us to get involved in phone banking to engage VOTERS around issues. Contact Marcus in KS or Gary in MO for more info.
