As the St. Louis region commemorates the fifth anniversary of the #FergusonUprisings, the outpouring of civic activism following the killing of Michael Brown Jr., key regional organizations are proud to present the St. Louis Racial Equity Summit on October 10-11, 2019, a platform for elevating, connecting, and activating the people, practices, and resources necessary to achieve Racial Equity.
There will be a welcome reception held on Thursday, October 10th from 5:30PM-7:30PM and then a full day of programming on Friday from 7:30AM-4:30PM.
The purpose of the summit is three-fold:
Reinforce the vital importance of putting Racial Equity at the forefront of our region’s agenda and acknowledge the people who have been unflinching in this work.
Highlight local successes, bold ideas, learning experiences, and best practices in the movement to advance Racial Equity.
Build alignment and investment in the Forward Through Ferguson framework for achieving equity by 2039.
The Racial Equity Summit’s inclusive agenda will drive inspiration, learning, and action, with programming for a broad range of stakeholders. To inspire, we will acknowledge activists, citizens, and champions whose devotion is unyielding, yet often unrecognized. Rousing keynotes will raise our spirits and ignite our commitment. Workshops will guide us toward action, expanding our capacity to catalyze and sustain the work.
