Bus tour supporting Amy Coney Barrett has Kansas City, Springfield stops next week

A nationwide-wide bus tour in support of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett will stop in Kansas City Oct. 20 and 21.

The Women for Amy tour is sponsored by Concerned Women for America and is part of a twelve state effort. The tour will travel during the month of October to educate citizens in the target areas regarding the qualifications of Barrett to sit on the Supreme Court. With so many pro-life and family issues at stake, it also reinforced the Constitutional actions of the Republican-controlled Senate fill the seat before the General election.

On Monday, a pink bus with a picture of Barrett on one side and information about the organization’s “She Prays She Votes” initiative on the other turned heads as it pulled up in front of the U.S. Capitol Building. Concerned Women for America is spending $500,000 on both the “She Prays She Votes” initiative and the “Women for Amy” bus tour.

As Barrett’s confirmation hearings began Monday, the bus stopped in the heart of the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.

Concerned Women for America President and CEO Penny Young Nance explained that her organization wanted to bring together conservative women from across the county to “voice their support on behalf of Amy Coney Barrett as she went into her hearing.”

“We were lining the streets on Constitution Avenue and welcoming her so that she knew there was support for her and women of faith in support of her nomination,” Nance explained.

“The second thing is we were praying. We’re praying for our nation, we’re praying for the Supreme Court, we’re praying for the Barrett family. We learned from the [Brett] Kavanaugh nomination that these can be very chaotic hearings and that there is true spiritual warfare around these nominations.”
