St. Louis Mayoral Forum 2017
For the first time in 16 years, St. Louis will be electing a new mayor. To ensure residents are well-informed on how candidates plan to address challenges facing the city and the region, a group of regional initiatives focused on creating a more racially equitable St. Louis have partnered to shift the conversation to put greater emphasis on the systemic issues that currently plague our region.
The forum will focus on regional issues outlined by the signature priorities of the Forward through Ferguson Report — Justice for All, Youth at the Center, & Opportunity to Thrive. Special emphasis will be placed on youth well-being and opportunity, neighborhood improvement, racial equity, and leadership and management styles.
Reception at 6pm; Forum begins promptly at 7pm. Registration is free and required.
An inclusionary policy will be used to determine which of the many candidates will be participating in this Forum.
