Honoring Our Veterans

November 13th, 2018


This Veterans Day, we honor and recognize the sacrifices of Missouri’s returned soldiers.

Our district is home to nearly 50,000 veterans. It is our privilege to call these brave men and women our neighbors, and to support them as they live and thrive in civilian life.

Missouri is already making strides to improve the lives of our returned soldiers, but our work is far from over.

Our veterans deserve the best healthcare, education, and housing — and in Congress, I pledge to do my part to make that happen.

To all Missouri veterans and their families, thank you for your service.

Emanuel Cleaver

A Heart Felt Thank You

November 8th, 2018

Thank you!

Tonight our campaign won an overwhelming victory after sky-high turnout.

I’m honored that the people of Missouri’s 5th District have re-elected me to serve another term, and I’m eager to continue my work for you in Congress.

Over the course of our campaign, our volunteers poured their hearts and souls into electing Democrats across Missouri. We knocked on 75,000+ doors, made more than 20,000 live phone calls, and sent over 10,000 handwritten postcards communicating our message of civility and accomplishments to the voters.

Our Country Deserves Better Than This

September 20th, 2018


Like many, I have been following the recent news about Brett Kavanaugh with a sense of deep shame over how low our country’s politics have fallen.

Last Sunday, Professor Christine Blasey Ford bravely came forward to share important information on why Judge Kavanaugh should not sit on the Supreme Court. Still, Republicans in the Senate are pushing ahead with his nomination, putting politics over country and over common sense.

I’m calling on the GOP to withdraw Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination from consideration and I need 1,500 people to join me by midnight Friday.

Professor Ford sacrificed her privacy and sense of security to protect our nation’s welfare in a true act of patriotism. Without her story, the Senate could have confirmed a man accused of serious crimes to a lifelong term on the Supreme Court.

Our country deserves honest Supreme Court justices of good moral character. We deserve better than the likes of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

I’m proud to join a bipartisan coalition of voices to speak up against Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Sign your name to join me and demand that Republicans withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination immediately.

Thank you,

Emanuel Cleaver

50 Days – Our rights are at stake

September 17th, 2018

Today marks 50 days until Election Day — and the clock is only speeding up.

It’s no secret that this November, there’s a lot at stake. The president has nominated one of the most dangerous judicial activists in history to the Supreme Court, and his confirmation could have terrible implications for voting rights, women’s rights, and working people.

Congressman Cleaver is working hard to turn out voters across Missouri’s Fifth District and win a majority for common sense in Washington — but our opponents are working just as hard. We’ve set a goal to raise $5,500 by midnight to fund our campaign outreach, and we’re more than halfway there. Can you chip in?

Make a Contribution

Future generations will read about this period in history and ask what we did when our progress was threatened. We should be able to answer proudly that we stood up and fought back.

On Election Day, the stakes are high — but we can win. Pitch in to help Congressman Cleaver win re-election and fight for civility and common sense on Capitol Hill →

Thank you,

Team Cleaver
