LeadMO is not an outfront organization; we exist to support the groups that are living and breathing to fight for the systemic changes needed to build a better Missouri. We see our role as supporting the communities across the state doing this work, specifically focusing on organizations representing communities that have not had adequate historical investment. These organizations and their membership represent the best of Missouri, from reproductive and racial justice advocates, to folks fighting for farmers’ rights, and to the union leaders and essential workers that keep our state running.
LeadMO seeks to be additive and not duplicative. To that end, we don’t focus on directy recruiting unaffiliated candidates ourselves, but rather support organizations on the ground that know what is best for their communities and members. We take their lead on how to support a diverse, civic-forward recruitment pipeline for both candidates and political operatives, and offer our expertise in campaign planning, training, recruitment support, and an open door ‘free consulting’ policy.
This work is only possible because of the foundations, organizations, and individuals that partner with us.
