Statement on the Ferguson Commission’s Report

“The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis wholeheartedly supports the findings of the Ferguson Commission’s report. Since the crisis began, our staff, board and volunteers have worked tirelessly to stabilize Ferguson and the entire region with programs such as Save Our Sons to help African American and other men find jobs, providing food and basic needs to our residents, and beginning construction on the Urban League Community Empowerment Center of Ferguson among other resources. We look forward to working with the Commission to Identify Job Training Best Practices and Establish Regional Baselines for diversity and equity throughout our region. It is our hope that each of the Ferguson Commission’s recommendations be implemented with a sense of urgency to bring greater stability, justice, equity and, ultimately, growth to the entire St. Louis metropolitan area.”

President and CEO
