Confirmed Candidates: Megan Ellyia Green, Jamilah Nasheed, Lewis Reed
The primary race for the President of the Board of Aldermen is a critical opportunity for citizens to shape political leadership and policy priorities for the City of St. Louis. Following up on our successful Mayoral Forum of 2017, the SPEAC coalition is organizing a primary candidate forum. The Forum puts Racial Equity front-and-center, focusing on pressing regional issues including child and youth well-being, health disparities, economic opportunity, neighborhood improvement, and criminal justice.
Questions will be aligned to Calls to Action from the Ferguson Commission Report.
Hosted by SPEAC (the Social Policy and Electoral Accountability Collaborative):
Clark-Fox Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis, Community Builders Network, UMSL Community Innovation and Action Center, FOCUS St. Louis, Forward Through Ferguson, Generate Health STL, Health Equity Works (formerly For the Sake of All), Ready By 21 Saint Louis, St. Louis Equal Housing & Reinvestment Alliance, Trailnet, and Vision for Children at Risk.
The Social Policy & Electoral Accountability Collaborative (SPEAC) is a group of leading St. Louis area organizations that are striving to hold elected officials accountable to the communities they represent—or are seeking to represent—both prior to an election and afterward.
