Please support Amendment 2 on August 4

To our Washington University community,

The time has come. Please vote Yes on Amendment 2, which would expand Medicaid in Missouri. Your vote tomorrow could help nearly a quarter-million vulnerable Missourians gain access to healthcare and, in the process, bring more than a billion dollars of our tax dollars home each year. A simple step, a vast reward for Missouri.

We are proud of the effort our community has put forward in support of Amendment 2. Attached are reflections from several of our colleagues on why expanding Medicaid in Missouri is so critical. We urge you to listen to what they have to say and vote Yes on 2 tomorrow.

Our action as individuals on this effort will benefit so many.
