MASWM Affiliate Organization Focuses on Communications

MESA volunteers worked hard to take Missouri's workshop message to Washington, D.C. during the second Missouri Day on the Hill.
There’s a lot going on with MASWM’s new affiliate organization, Missouri Employment Supports and Advocacy (MESA).

Launched in just 2016 by MASWM’s legislative A Team Missouri, the advocacy organization has successfully built a website,, and much more.

One of the biggest events included the second annual “Missouri Day on the Hill” visit to the nation’s capital. Covered in an earlier newsletter, the event received support from all offices in D.C. that represented Missouri. Missouri also collaborated with A Team Nevada and gathered a lot of helpful information from them, as well as made connection with the Chicago/Illinois A Teams on that same trip. “A Team National” continues to grow and work together!

The group’s communications through the Porter Group in Washington, D.C., are led by former Nevada Congressman Jon Porter and his son, Chris. The group attends meetings, hearings and other events on behalf of MASWM/MESA and reports back with critical information and communications.

Upcoming events include a Missouri “Day for Choice” in Jefferson City on April 24. Details will be available at the MASWM January meeting and a fully detailed report on MESA on Jan. 30.
