Virtual Vigil for Democracy and Remembrance
Thursday, January 6, 2022
6:30 p.m.

It’s been nearly one year since militants attacked our Capitol and tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election. We must not forget what happened — and we must demand action from our leaders to prevent another attack on our democracy

Missouri lawmakers return to Jefferson City on Jan. 5 to consider legislation that would undermine our democracy. Around the country, voting advocates are marking the one-year anniversary.

Here in Missouri, frigid forecasts have forced us to pivot multiple planned in-person Jan. 6 Vigils across the state to this Statewide Virtual Vigil at 6:30pm on Jan. 6. Join fellow voter advocates in this day of remembrance and learn how you can take action to protect our democracy.

Medicaid Expansion

Now, more adults can get low-cost or FREE health insurance through Missouri Medicaid (called MO
HealthNet). Medicaid through MO HealthNet may be an option for you. This includes parents who have not qualified before, as well as childless adults.
For example, a single adult making up to $17,774 a year, or a family of 4 making up to $36,750 a year, may qualify for Medicaid through MO HealthNet.
Even if you tried to get Medicaid before and did not qualify, check again!
