THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Sen. Cory Booker is Coming to [the Truman] Dinner!
Mark your calendars and reserve your sofa because our special guest U.S. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will give the Keynote Address for Truman Dinner and officially kick-off the fall election season.
We’re starting the day off with congressional district reorganization meetings all across the state, followed by a volunteer shift of phonebanking or textbanking, and then you can kick back for our VIP Q&A with a special guest, or join us for the main event with Cory Booker, Nicole Galloway, Jill Schupp, and more!
Trump’s True Legacy
In a special op-ed for the St. Louis American, our Chair and Officers wrote that Donald Trump’s real legacy will be his attacks on the Black community and his total failure to act in the face of COVID-19. Trump’s hateful, divisive rhetoric is a cheap attempt to distract from his complete and total abdication of leadership.
