Grass Roots Organizing (GRO) was founded by a group of six women in October 2000. The purpose of the organization is "to create a grass-roots voice to win economic justice and human rights for all Missourians," according to its website. GRO's primary concern has been working to protect Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in Missouri and across the nation for the current and future generations.
Since it was founded, GRO has worked on a number of projects, according to its website, including:
- A public accountability meeting with the Missouri Food Stamp director.
- A statewide petition in 2006 to reinstate Missouri's 2005 Medicaid cuts.
- Participation in the 2007 Heartland Presidential Forum in Des Moines, Iowa.
- Operating the Volunteer Income Tax Site in Mexico, Mo., for six years as of May 2014.
