St. Louis, MO – Advocacy organization, St. Louis Strong, will host community roundtable discussions on how to improve the St. Louis region following a series of national events which further highlight the divisions within our own local region.
Research efforts locally-driven by Better Together, the Ferguson Commission, the Police Executive Research Forum, For the Sake of All, and the Department of Justice have each painstakingly examined the St. Louis region’s weaknesses, strengths, and opportunities. Their work provides the hard empirical data and evidence needed for a thoughtful public dialogue. St. Louis Strong applauds these efforts and will use their research to guide informative discussions on where to go from here.
The time for action has begun. Public discussions hosted by St. Louis Strong will aim to bring members of the community together to answer the question, “How do we make St. Louis strong?”
These dialogues are open to the public and welcome all St. Louisans who have a sincere interest in bettering the region. St. Louis Strong asks that all participants bring an open mind and open ears to discuss the hard challenges we face and how to change ineffective, inequitable, inefficient, and antiquated regional structures.
The roundtable discussions will be held at the following locations and times:
