Reaching Into Neighborhoods
Racial disparities in education, income and health affect the health and the prosperity of our entire region. A recent study, For the Sake of All, looks at these disparities and how we can reduce them.
St. Louis Public Radio's Listening Project is reaching into neighborhoods to meet and talk to people about these findings. We hope to engage people in informed discussion on the issues, knowing that all voices are essential in crafting effective and workable solutions to the disparities that divide us.
Today we are launching a new resource to support the Listening Project and these discussions. This site has links to local and national news reports on health, economic and education disparities. It has videos, radio stories and even a reading list. There’s a calendar of where we’ll be meeting as well as photos and audio from those events.
We want to know what you think. Join us on Twitter and Facebook and watch for #ListenSTL and the Listening Project logo. Sign up to receive texts to participate in surveys on these critical regional issues and to get more information on related news.
We want to learn from you and add your voice to our news reporting.
Funding for this project was provided by the Missouri Foundation for Health. Missouri Foundation for Health is a resource for the region, working with communities and nonprofits to generate and accelerate positive changes in health.
