Budget Blues and Other Sad Songs from Jefferson City

Speaker: Amy Blouin, Executive Director of the Missouri Budget Project


Amy Blouin, the Founder and Executive Director of the Missouri Budget Project (MBP), will give us an expert's look at our state's current budget and explain how it affects the quality of services we can provide our citizens. She'll explore such questions as:
  • What is the human impact of Missouri's budget?
  • How does it reflect our values?
  • Is it possible under our current budget to adequately fund education, health care, the arts, transportation, and provide quality programs for children, the elderly and our veterans?
Blouin will also talk about the role MBP plays in informing public policy decisions and how the state could increase revenues to ensure that we meet the needs of everyone in the state. Finally, she'll help us understand how an organization like Women's Voices can help influence budget decisions.

If you have a few minutes before this meeting, you might want to review the Missouri Budget Primer on MBP's website. It will give you an excellent grounding in the issues Blouin will be discussing and will make our Q&A period after her talk more productive.

White Privilege: Have We Learned Not To Look?

Speakers: Amy Hunter, Director of Racial Justice, YWCA
Robert Good, Ph.D., Social Studies teacher, Ladue Horton Watkins High School


Come join us to learn, share and ask questions about white privilege and its racial implications. Our speakers will address white privilege and the purpose of understanding race:
  • to bridge gaps,
  • to build close and authentic relationships with others
  • to work toward healing the hurts of racial disparities which we have witnessed all too much in our community.
In so doing they will explain how the benefits of working toward social change assist with our own need for peace, humanity and citizenship in our community.

Stolen Childhoods: The Emotional Toll of Gun Violence

Speakers: Valerie Carter-Thomas, principal, Northwest Academy of Law
Ajuma Muhammad, licensed psychotherapist who provides mental health services for "at risk" adolescent boys
TBA: child psychiatrist


A teacher who works in an inner-city school has said: "Most middle-class Americans have no idea about the trauma these kids experience living in their neighborhoods." This program will help educate us about what violence, especially gun violence, is doing to children who don't feel safe. The goal will be to give us a better understanding of these children, so that we may develop some empathy and work to eliminate the criminalization of black youth.

This program is a follow-up to the Women's Voices "Safe and Sound: Smart Strategies to Protect Children from Gun Violence" forum held in April, 2014, and is coordinated by members of the Campaign for Common-Sense Gun Solutions committee.
