In 2014, eyes turned to St. Louis as the fatal shooting of Michael Brown created ripples across our nation and the world. Ferguson became a national symbol of systemic racism and social injustice.
Division, anger, confusion, inequality … how would our community respond?
The Urban League and Centene joined with community leaders, government officials, small-business owners, and educators to create a new story in Ferguson, Missouri.
This is a story about addressing our issues head on, stepping up and creating positive social change. It’s a story that will be used to inspire countless others to create stronger, economically viable communities.
As members of the St. Louis community, this story is close to our hearts, and we are honored to tell it.
