Have you been discriminated against in school or in the workplace or been denied housing or access to public accommodations?

PROMO wants to hear your story. Your stories would be used to show actual situations of discrimination in the state of Missouri. These stories will help to pass the Missouri Safe Schools Legislation and the Missouri Nondiscrimination Act (MONA).

If you have been discriminated against in your school, fired from your job, denied a lease or access to housing or public accommodations on the basis of actual or perceived characteristics, such as race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or a mental, physical or sensory disability, or on the basis of association with others identified by these categories, WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY.

For confidentiality, please email your stories to
You may also call the SWMO Regional Field Organizer, Stephanie Perkins, at 417.291.6569 to talk about your story.

PROMO is Missouri's statewide organization advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and Transgender equality through legislative action, electoral politics, grassroots organizing, and community education.
