In recent years, basic human rights have been under attack in Missouri. From the passage of SB 43, which makes it easier for employers in our state to discriminate, to prohibition of DACA recipients from accessing in-state tuition rates at public universities, to the fact that Missouri continually ranks among the lowest states in the nation for protections for our LGBTQIA+ community, it is clear that we have a lot of work to do to create a state that is inclusive for all people who live here. That means we have to act locally to protect our most marginalized communities.
As Alderwoman, Megan co-sponsored legislation to ban conversion therapy and sponsored resoutions to support immigration into St. Louis. Megan believes that we need to decriminalize sex work in our City to improve public health and public safety, which is one of the calls-to-action of the National LGBTQ Taskforce. Additionally, Megan believes that immigrants are vital to the success of the 15th Ward and the City of St. Louis and opposes any efforts of our local government to coordinate with ICE.
