Example: Forward through Ferguson Action Plan
Forward through Ferguson's Action Plan lays out the three Action Strategies that guide the organization’s work for the next three years as it works to achieve a racially equitable St. Louis by the year 2039, which will mark the 25th anniversary of the death of Michael Brown.
When the Ferguson Commission delivered their report to the region they named it “Forward Through Ferguson: A Path to Racial Equity.” The Commission wove together data and resident experiences into a sweeping community policy document that linked a specific traumatic event to regional racial inequity. They urged them to face inequitable reality. Only through confronting their trauma would they have the opportunity to move forward.
The Commission also endowed them with a compass aligned to their true north: Racial Equity—a future St. Louis where race no longer predicts life outcomes.
