2/15 Legislative Priorities – With the Legislative session getting underway, join NCJW for an overview of the bills we will be focused on – both supporting and opposing. Whether you plan to join one of our Lobby Days in Jefferson City or you’ll be expressing your opinions via letters and phone calls to your representatives, understanding the talking points on the various hot-button issues will help you make your voice heard in a more powerful and effective way.

3/15 School-to-Prison Pipeline. Black students are 4-6 times more likely to be suspended than their white peers, funneling many into the prison system and perpetuating cycle of poverty, low education attainment and structural inequities that span generations. Daniela Velazquez from the ACLU will share details of their initiative on unequal discipline and ways we can support those efforts and help improve outcomes for minority youth.

4/19 State Tax Reform – Our associates at the Missouri Budget Project will probably shock you with their insights into the quirks of our state tax code and the dangerous impact the resulting revenue decrease can have on the needs of women, children and families. The neighboring state of Kansas has implemented similar policies with results that are widely considered disastrous. Learn what can be done in Missouri to intervene and minimize the damage.

Lunch and Learns are held at the NCJW STL offices at 295 N. Lindbergh, St. Louis MO 63141. We will begin gathering at 11:30 AM. Speakers will begin at noon. Please RSVP to Lisa at 314-993-5181 or lgjerswald@ncjwstl.org so that we can be sure to have adequate seating.
