What is the NAACP travel advisory?
The travel advisory was created to warn people – people that might be affected– of the impending harms that could occur if they or their loved ones are in the state of Missouri.
Individuals traveling in the state are advised to travel with extreme CAUTION. Race, gender and color based crimes have a long history in Missouri. Missouri, home of Lloyd Gaines, Dred Scott and the dubious distinction of the Missouri Compromise and one of the last states to loose its slaveholding past, may not be safe. The Missouri State Conference of the NAACP followed Governor Greiten’s signing of this Jim Crow Bill – SB 43 – earned the NAACP advisory for the State of Missouri permanent until further notice. SB 43 legalizes individual discrimination and harassment in Missouri and prevents individuals from protecting themselves from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in Missouri courts.
