Each day, we see the devastating consequences public policies have on our clients, and we are called to advocate for a world in which all are valued. To join us in our efforts, explore this page.

Take Action: 2020 SFCS Policy Priorities
Our policy priorities are based out of the direct experience of our clients, voices of our staff, and expertise of coalition members. Pick an issue, learn more, and call or write your legislator to help us advocate for a Missouri where all are valued. Find your legislator here.
Pass the Immigrant Tenant Protections Act
The Immigrant Tenant Protection Act of Missouri prohibits landlords from disclosing or threatening to disclose the immigration status of their tenants for reasons of intimidation or retaliation.
Pass In-State Tuition for Undocumented Students
Tell your legislator to oppose SB 642, which mandates that public institutions of higher education charge international tuition rates to undocumented students.
Tell your legislator to support House Bill 1423 and House Bill 1863, which establish in-state tuition for undocumented students.
Oppose the Police-to-ICE Pipeline
Forcing municipalities to divert funding toward immigration enforcement rather than local public safety concerns is bad for public safety and undermines the trust between local law enforcement and the families they serve. Tell your Senator to oppose SB 589.
