Black History Month: Advocacy & Allyship: Towards a More Racially Just St. Louis

  • Tuesday, February 22, 2022 • 12:30 pm

Tragic events and startling health disparities statistics brought focus on St. Louis as a community with much work to do to achieve racial equality. Recent years have brought redoubled efforts to organize, gather data to better understand the underlying issues, and implement innovative strategies to reduce inequality and create a safer, healthier, and more vibrant community for all St. Louisans. Join a conversation with leaders in this effort to consider the gains made, the challenges that remain, and ways in which everyone can contribute to solutions. This Advocacy & Allyship series program, presented in partnership with the Clark-Fox Policy Institute, is part of the Brown School’s recognition of Black History Month.
