St. Louis Launches Community Conversations

On July 10, FOCUS St. Louis officially launched its online Community Conversations Forum featuring insights from key regional leaders regarding critical issues. The program is an opportunity for everyone in the region to have a conversation with leadership and with each other. The idea behind this is to bridge divides (e.g., geographic, cultural, social) and build understanding about complex issues.

Conversational threads focusing on priority regional issue areas have been started by the following regional leaders: St. Louis City Mayor Francis Slay (Regional Stewardship), Missouri State Senator Jeff Smith (Public Education), Missouri State Senator Joan Bray (Immigration Reform and the Role of State Government), St. Louis Post Dispatch Columnist Sylvester Brown (Race and Economics in our Region), Partner at Edward Jones Emily Pitts (Workplace Diversity), and Director of the Home Builders Association of St. Louis and Eastern Missouri Pat Sullivan (Regional Workforce Housing). Other leaders committed to contributing include Founder of River City Professionals Scott Lapp (How to Promote a More Young, Diverse and Vibrant Community).

For more information about the Community Conversations Forum, please contact Nikki Weinstein at 314-622-1250 x102 or nikkiw@focus-stl.org, or visit the forum online at http://forums.focus-stl.org.
