What's Vital to STL?

Issues that are of the essence, key and of the utmost importance for our region to grow and thrive.


In 2014, the St. Louis area became daily front-page news not only across the country but around the world following the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Once the worldwide spotlight faded, many of the issues that arose – equality, racism, and justice system changes among several others – remained.
