Getting Here

Recent proposals to restructure governance in the St. Louis region pose an opportunity for citizens to consider changes that advance racial equity and economic prosperity. "Poverty and Race: The Other St. Louis" will feature Wes Moore, renowned author, speaker, veteran and CEO of Robin Hood, a leading organization in the fight against poverty. 

Moore’s first book, “The Other Wes Moore,” a perennial New York Times bestseller, captured the nation’s attention on the fine line between success and failure in our communities and in ourselves. Mirroring this theme, this event will examine the interconnectedness of poverty and race, the role of community-based institutions and the need for regional collaboration to repair deep-rooted disparities in St. Louis. 

Admission is free, however, advance registration is required.
