SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will join members of the local faith community for a rally tonight billed as a challenge to the Missouri Legislature “to show moral leadership this session.”

Expanding Medicaid coverage to the state’s residents under the Affordable Care Act and addressing low wages and predatory lending practices are among the organizers’ issues.

The 7 p.m. event at Central Assembly of God, 1301 Boonville in Springfield, is “to express unified concert to Missouri’s elected officials about the growing and dangerous chasm between policy priorities and human dignity.”
