Legislative Forums

It’s never too early to start mobilizing your membership to “save the date” and to make plans to come to one of Missouri NEA’s regional legislative forums or Capitol Action Days in the spring. Check the schedule below for the 2019 MNEA Legislative activity in your area. Start making your list now of those members, administrators and school board members who would enjoy and benefit from a discussion regarding support for public education!

Each of these free events will be a legislative panel or discussion forum. These events provide a chance for members to build relationships with area legislators and support their understanding of MNEA priorities and education issues. Regional planning committees are working with other local leaders to identify at least one member per legislator to attend the event, invite the legislator personally and follow up with further conversation. 

Attend on a date that works for you, even if it’s outside your Governance District.

Share your story

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at coronavirus@mnea.org, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
