We need your help to stop the so-called “Right-to-Work” bill from becoming law in Missouri. Statistics show that RTW drives wages down, compromises workers’ safety, reduces health care benefits and increases state’s poverty rates.

RTW is scheduled to take effect on August 28 but the Missouri AFL-CIO has implemented a ballot referendum campaign. This will put the question of whether to retain or overturn the “Right-to-Work” law on the November 2018 mid-term ballot.

Ready Readers is always seeking high-quality readers and storytellers to inspire our children to love books. SAG-AFTRA members would bring an amazing gift of presentation and enthusiasm to truly excite the children. Part of the success of the Ready Readers program is that the same volunteer reads to the same classroom of  children every week at the same time, creating strong bonds.  Volunteers would need to commit weekly for 30 minutes plus drive time. Ready Readers will provide all of the training, mentoring, workshops, resources and support for SAG-AFTRA volunteers.
