HB1568: Seclusion & Restraint
As House Bill 119 & HB387 move through the legislative process to becoming a law, there are many important stages. Within each stage, we will need to supporters to email, call, or visit certain legislators. We will continue to update this page, letting you know where the bill is and how you can best advocate.
The first step for the bills will be to get assigned to a committee. Once this is done, we will ask the committee chair to give one of the bills a hearing. We will launch a Call to Action once a hearing is scheduled, asking everyone to email or call the legislators on the committee in support of the seclusion and restraint bill.
Please support HB1568 which has been assigned to the Elementary and Secondary Education Committee. It sets guidelines for seclusion and restraint in MO schools. (In 2-3 sentences explain why you think MO needs a law placing guidelines on seclusion and restraint.) Thank you for helping protect Missouri's children.
This sample is very basic. You are welcome to share personal stories. These can make a big impact. We want to stress that it doesn't have to be long or fancy. Please take the time to reach out to all the committee members. Your emails can swing votes.
