MASW State Convention/Update

We will have a table set up at the Missouri Association for Social Welfare state convention on November 6 and 7.  The convention will be in Jefferson City at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.  Mark it on your calendars, and come see us at the convention.

The convention was a huge success!  People from all over the state were present as were a number of legislators.  MASW announced its name change to Empower Missouri.  We look forward to our continued work with this organization which has been dedicated to Missouri citizens since 1901.

Special thank you goes to Empower Missouri's president, Jeanette Mott Oxford.  She and her team did a great job organizing this event.

Empower Missouri's Criminal Justice Task Force has chosen to make mandatory minimum reform for first time offenders one of their top agenda items for this coming legislative session.
