Who We Are

Protect MO Families is a broad-based coalition of organizations and individuals who have come together to support middle class families and oppose anti-worker policies such as so-called “Right to Work” and attacks on Prevailing Wage, that would reduce wages and benefits for our families.

We stand for Missouri’s working families, and against the millionaire CEOs, corporate extremists and self-interested politicians who are waging war on the middle class.

Join us in the fight to protect Missouri families.
