Clean Missouri. Clean Missouri is proposing a constitutional amendment that would do what legislators have failed to do: imposing gift limits for legislators, lowering campaign contribution limits, changing the length of time required before becoming lobbyists, and changing the model for drawing districts to prevent partisan gerrymandering.

Join us for a presentation by Clean Missouri representative Lexi Amos and a Q & A session afterwards.
