Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide

For the Sake of All recently released a collaborative 115-page report, Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide.

It presents an overview of more than a century of federal, state, and municipal policies, real estate practices, and development strategies that have kept far too many of the St. Louis region’s residents segregated in neighborhoods with less opportunity to advance economically and fewer resources to support health and well-being.

The report concludes with 11 policy recommendations intended to drive community action towards equitable and inclusive housing in the region.

Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide is designed to foster quality neighborhoods – one of six priorities that originated from the May 2014 report, For the Sake of All: A Report on the Health and Well-Being of African Americans in St. Louis and Why It Matters for Everyone.
