Ways To Connect

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.

For the Sake of All

St. Louis Public Radio, in partnership with faculty at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, has received a grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health to raise awareness of and stimulate discussion around health, education and economic inequities in our region.
