Alderwoman
15th Ward

Tomorrow, October 12th is the last day Missourians may register to vote in the November 8th General Election. Please remind family, friends and neighbors--this election is too important to sit out!

Here's what else is coming up in the 15th Ward this month. 

Exchange Promotes Understanding

The Tower Grove South and Tower Grove Heights neighborhood associations are inviting residents to participate in a half-day "exchange program" with the Baden neighborhood on October 22nd as part of "Neighborhoods United for Change", a project sponsored by SLACO. 

Every day, we witness and are affected by the impact of unaddressed racial tensions. Neighborhoods United for Change is an effort to bridge the gap in understanding between people, between communities, and between races. The program promotes ongoing relationships between "south side" and "north side" communities, in partnership with the Civil Rights Enforcement Agency (CREA), the Neighborhood Stabilization Team, the Mayor's Office, and Community Builders Network.

Our exchange will include a bus tour of each neighborhood, a shared lunch, and guided conversations about racial experiences. Skilled facilitators will foster high-quality conversations about "why things are the way they are". 

The October 22nd event runs from 8:30 AM through 12:30 PM. There is no charge to participate. If you would like to be part of this broader community-building process, email tgsneighborhood@gmail.com

For additional details about the Neighborhoods United for Change program, check out SLACO's website and the story on St. Louis Public Radio.

Reminder:  Forum on Public Safety

Later this month, police, fire, and community advocates will propose steps for improving both public safety and transparency, with an emphasis on solutions. I have been working with representatives from the Ethical Society of Police (E.S.O.P.) to address officers' concerns with policing and racial equity in the city of St. Louis.

The event is hosted by Oak Hill Presbyterian Church, E.S.O.P. and Firefighters Institute for Racial Equality (F.I.R.E.). The event is open to the public.

When:  Tuesday, October 18th, 6 PM to 8 PM
Where:  Oak Hill Presbyterian Church, 4111 Connecticut

Thanks for all you do to make the 15th Ward in St. Louis a wonderful place to call home. It's an honor to serve as your Alderwoman.
 
Sincerely,
 
Megan
