In order to spark constructive conversations tied to the larger issues that the events of August 9th, 2014 brought to the forefront, we documented the personal perspectives of commissioners and everyday folks in St. Louis for the Ferguson Commission report. In these stories, featuring those who shared their experiences, expertise, insights, and vision, we purposefully shined a lens on the report’s calls to action and the four signature priorities: racial equity, opportunity to thrive, youth at the center, and justice for all.
We continue to provide storytelling with Forward Through Ferguson, and most recently set out to envision what a transformed St. Louis region would look like, where, regardless of race and ZIP code, there is justice for all, the opportunity to thrive, and boundless possibility for all of our youth. If 2039 is 25 years, a generation, after the killing of Michael Brown and the events of Ferguson, what would a racially equitable St. Louis look, feel, and sound like? Add your #STL2039 vision here.
