FOR ATTENDING THE 2023 SAINT LOUIS RACIAL EQUITY SUMMIT!
RECORDINGS FROM THE MAIN BALLROOM SESSIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN 2025!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS!
The 2023 Racial Equity Summit is designed to build on the success of the inaugural summit in 2019 AND 2021, when over 500 advocates for equity gathered together. The 2023 St. Louis Racial Equity Summit will take place late Fall, moving back to an IN-PERSON platform, with the option to attend virtually, as we continue to allow more people to participate in sessions while adhering to safe gathering policies. Curriculum tracts will be available for all levels: from beginners in this work, to nonprofit leaders, to seasoned organizers.
This convening will again serve as a platform to elevate, collaborate, and activate the people, practices, and resources necessary to achieve Racial Equity. The 2023 theme is, “Together We Rise: The Power of Community”. The summit has three purposes:
1) Awareness of Inequity: To engage participants in building their awareness of systemic inequities that exist in the regions-- from education to housing to healthcare and beyond.
2) Understanding of Why Inequity Exists: To help participants to gain an understanding of the systemic issues at hand and build a plan for how to address them, perhaps looking at successful tactics in St. Louis or other regions.
3) Transforming Towards Equity: To share ready-made + pressure-tested strategies for taking action. We will look to the leadership of local leaders of color to share actions that can be taken against structural inequities right now.
The Summit Organizing Committee is led by representatives from Forward Through Ferguson, the Clark-Fox Policy Institute at Washington University in St. Louis, University of Missouri - St. Louis, Freedom Community Center, Gladiator Consulting, Invest STL, Key Strategic Group, the St. Louis Community Foundation, A Red Circle, St. Louis Regional Health Commission, and the United Way of Greater St. Louis!
