Vision: PROMO envisions a Missouri where everyone has full equality in the hearts and minds of citizens, in all areas of the law, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
PROMO is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse staff and board, in regards to background, culture, sexual orientation, and gender identity, and strongly urges applications from transgender or gender nonconforming individuals and persons from underrepresented ethnic and racial groups.
PROMO is made up of two entities, PROMO, a 501(c)(4) organization, and PROMO Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization. PROMO is Missouri’s statewide organization advocating for LGBTQ equality through legislative action, electoral politics, grassroots organizing, and community education. PROMO Fund promotes equality and protects the human and civil rights of LGBTQ people in Missouri.
