Forward Through Ferguson: What’s Next & Applying the Racial Equity Lens

Wednesday, Feb. 24 • 6:30-8:00 p.m.
St. Louis Public Library  •  FREE

The Ferguson Commission wrapped up its official duties on Dec. 31, 2015, but the work carries on. Forward Through Ferguson and FOCUS St. Louis will host two upcoming forums focused on the implementation phase of the Ferguson Commission report.

This first event will highlight work already underway throughout the region, giving examples of how people and organizations are working together on implementation of the report's signature priorities. We’ll also illustrate how applying the racial equity lens in decision-making can improve outcomes across our region.


The panel will include representatives from:

  • Active Advocacy Coalition and St. Louis Graduates on their efforts to change inequities in Bright Flight and other merit-based state scholarships.
  • Ferguson Collaborative on their advocacy for the inclusion of community voices, particularly those most affected by unconstitutional policing, in the negotiation of the Department of Justice consent decree with Ferguson.
  • For the Sake of All on their work to create and advance collaborative action plans on key recommendations aligned in the FSOA and Ferguson Commission reports.
  • MICDS High School on their Local Action Project, a social entrepreneurship and problem-based learning unit for all 11th graders, which pushes students to identify an issue they find compelling, find alignment with reports like Forward Through Ferguson, and create an advocacy, policy, or service solution they can make actionable.

This event is free to attend, and you can RSVP using the link above. Read the full Ferguson Commission report here.
