“PROMO is dedicated to achieving a more inclusive Missouri for all. We have seen incredible advances in equality at local, state, and national levels, but there is so much more work to do. Basic protections in employment, housing and public accommodations continue to be denied to many LGBT Missourians, and we have seen an increase in anti-LGBT legislation and initiatives in the last two years. Together, thanks to our generous sponsors, inclusive and affirming businesses, attendees, and volunteers, we can raise critical resources to ensure PROMO has the capacity to achieve a more inclusive, equitable, and welcoming state.”
