Former Missouri Supreme Court Chief headlines lunch and learn on ballot initiative

Michael Wolff

In an effort to educate members of the Jewish community about Amendment 6, a statewide ballot initiative that would amend the Missouri Constitution to require certain restrictive forms of photo identification in order to vote, the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the National Council of Jewish Women-St. Louis Section (NCJW) are co-sponsoring “Everything You Need to Know about Amendment 6.” This lunch-and-learn program will take place Friday, Nov. 4 at 12 p.m. at the Jewish Federation building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive.  

Featured speakers include Michael Wolff, dean of St. Louis University School of Law and a former Chief Justice of the Missouri Supreme Court; Christine Dragonette, director of social ministry at St. Francis Xavier College Church, and Rabbi Andrea Goldstein of Congregation Shaare Emeth.

The program will open with a history of the issue of photo voter ID in Missouri, followed by an overview of the ballot initiative itself and a presentation explaining the difficulties faced by many individuals who attempt to obtain a non-expired state ID in Missouri.  The event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided (dietary laws observed). For more information or to RSVP, contact Heather Silverman at 314-991-5181 or [email protected]
