Equity in City/County Reform: Political Representation and Criminal Justice with Focus STL

https://www.focus-stl.org/events/equity-in-city-county-reform-political-representation-and-criminal-justice/

While the Better Together plan has been withdrawn, the need for regional dialogue around the city/county issue remains. With a wide open field, the possibilities range from incremental (expanding collaboration efforts) to radical (unifying governance), and anything in between.

One thing we know is that any successful plan must encompass an open and direct community discussion on issues of racial equity. FOCUS St. Louis seeks to advance this conversation with an initial discussion on equity issues in the areas of political representation and in criminal justice.

Join us for a panel discussion with:

  • Wesley Bell, Prosecuting Attorney, St. Louis County

  • Andrea Benjamin, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Missouri-Columbia

  • Captain Perri Johnson, Commander – Sixth District, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department

  • Additional panelist to be named

For more than half a century, Steinberg Skating Rink in Forest Park has welcomed visitors for cold-weather fun during the late fall and winter months. But what if this space in the region’s landmark park could remain open and active with a variety of programming all year long?

The City of St. Louis and Forest Park Forever are currently seeking community members’ input on how they might enjoy visiting and using this area of Forest Park during all four seasons. All feedback and ideas are welcome! We will have a representative on-site at O’Fallon Recreation Center on Monday, June 24th from 1-7pm who would enjoy speaking with you about your ideas.
