Peace & Justice Advocacy

IPJ, since 1970, continues to try to educate on some of the many important issues affecting our local and global family.  It is our goal to update and inform you on current legislation and it's effects, and to present options for taking positive action.  We also through years of networking, attempt to provide links to different groups working specifically on particular issues, to give additional tools of knowledge and insight towards creating a more just society for all, and our planet itself.


Please notify Senate President Pro Tem Schatz and Majority Floor Leader Rowden hat you oppose Missouri Senate SB4! This would severely restrict peoples’ access to the SNAP (food assistance) program. Empower Missouri brings us some startling numbers of just how many people would be affected: 
 - 47,000 people risk losing assistance each month if a reporting problem arises. 
 - 57,000 kids would be disqualified for at least half a year.
 - 11,000 people would be permanently ineligible for SNAP assistance! 
 Clearly, support of this bill would mean ignoring our call to lead the hungry.
Other action you can take (from Empower Missouri):
"Recruit senators to filibuster against the bill (report to us so that we can equip them with materials)
