Our History


Consumers Council of Missouri builds on its foundation, laid in 1971, to educate consumers statewide and advocate for their collective interests through leadership and partnerships on issues such as utility rates, health care access, personal finance and others as they arise.


Consumers Council of Missouri began advocating in 2006, noting that consumer interests were being ignored in the halls of power, where well-financed lobbies for big business too often prevail.

Organized to educate and empower consumers statewide and to advocate for common interests, Consumers Council works to restore the historic balance between consumers and businesses.  We are a membership organization working for the shared interests of all Missouri consumers; we do not represent individual consumers.

Consumers Council uses consumer experts to help keep the public informed and to analyze important issues in areas such as energy, insurance and finance.   We advocate for consumers' interests locally, regionally, statewide and nationally by organizing consumers and educating policy makers through direct contact, email alerts and our website.
