ST. LOUIS — PROMO, Missouri’s statewide LGBT advocacy organization, is proud to announce the launch of their new website at promoonline.org. The increase of calls, emails, and messages from LGBT people in Missouri seeking resources helped PROMO guide the direction of the website.
With the increase of anti-LGBT bills and rhetoric in Missouri, the site aims to help Missourians not only take action, but to be more involved overall and impact what is happening at the local level. The website was designed to be easily navigated, while also allowing individual users to create customized action plans around call-to-action campaigns.
There are hundreds of resources available for LGBT people in various communities in Missouri. These services can be found by category on the website as well and will grow in the coming months and years as PROMO continues to build relationships, support, and train service providers and community leaders to be more inclusive and affirming.
“The LGBT community faces unique challenges, disparities, and needs across our state. PROMO attempts to make Missouri a better place for LGBT people and families through legislative and policy action, as well as ensuring that people have access to resources and services across the spectrum of care,” said Steph Perkins, PROMO Executive Director. “We hope this website serves as a resource and guide to LGBT Missourians, provides tools to allies, and gives opportunities for action in and out of legislative session that will impact the daily lives of people across the state.”
PROMO partnered with longtime advocates, Buzzbold, to develop the website.
“The PROMO Engage web app is helping Buzzbold explore new ideas and technologies for deeper, multi-faceted campaign engagement and it builds a foundation for personalized advocacy and more relevant resource discovery,” added Steven Ley, President of Buzzbold. “This work is central to our mission, as it not only helps PROMO enhance lives of LGBT people throughout the State of Missouri, but it also expands Buzzbold’s toolsets for advancing other LGBT State groups, environmental, social services, and public media causes.”
