Raise Up Missouri – Raising the minimum wage is pretty straight forward. But if one doesn’t work for minimum wage, it can be hard to fully understand how difficult life can be. Join us as we get personal about what it takes to live from day to day and how we have an opportunity to make wages more just in Missouri. We will meet in the Fireside Room 9:45-10:45 a.m.
It seems everywhere you look, people are taking sides and calling names. How can we learn to find common ground? On Saturday, July 21 at 7 p.m., the groundbreaking vocal group The Ripple Effect presents “If You Knew Me, You’d Love Me,” an afternoon/evening of music and words designed to build understanding. Uplifting songs of unity and inspiration will be interwoven with speakers from the community who will share personal stories of feeling misunderstood in our society today. The event takes place at Peace United Church of Christ.
You’ll hear a wide variety of great songs delivered by the choir with plenty of style—everything from Broadway and R&B to pop and psychedelic soul funk. You will also hear words spoken from the heart. Their stories will help us reach a fuller understanding of each other.
