Every year, the Missouri Department of Labor pays tribute to the men and women who lost their lives on the job by coming together with families, friends, colleagues and legislators. The Department holds a ceremony at the state capitol to honor the lives of Missouri's fallen workforce. Until enough funds are made available to build a physical memorial, a video is made to create a virtual memorial to honor those Missouri workers and their families. The Workers Memorial Fund was established to create a permanent memorial for all workers who suffered a job related death or injuries that resulted in a permanent disability while on the job in Missouri. When sufficient funds accumulate, the memorial will be located on the grounds of the state capitol.
Contributions may be made payable to the State of Missouri Workers' Memorial Trust Fund at any time by sending to:
