“The State of Black Missouri’ Town Hall Forum will address: Crime in St. Louis – Juvenile Justice, Immigration, State of Missouri Healthcare Systems, Correctional Systems, Collaboration with Law Enforcement, Minority Business Opportunities or lack there of and issues regarding our Education System.
Rep. Alan Green, Missouri Legislative Black Caucus Chairman states, “Our schools, communities and the State of Missouri is on life support. Our children deserve the best education available, senior citizens are afraid in their own communities, our black businesses are not thriving, healthcare costs have skyrocketed, criminals have claimed St. Louis as their own and how do we collaborate with law enforcement for the benefit of all and are our children graduating ready to attend institutions of higher learning and academia. There is an urgency to address these issues.”
