The power of grassroots was recently demonstrated right here in Missouri! The state department of Social Services, Family Support Division, awarded almost $100,000 of borrowed stimulus money you, your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren will be paying back with interest on the “Show Me Social Justice International Film Festival“!
After a grassroots activist spotted this atrocity, she contacted us to get the word out. We wrote a couple of blogs and notified several groups about this issue. After several phone calls to representatives and senators, the department decided the expenditure wasn’t appropriate and would ask for the money back. Problem is, they spent it already.
You can still make a difference on this issue. We need our elected officials to get some answers and our money back! Take a few minutes and participate in the Action Alert
