The Millennium Hotel St. Louis signed a code Tuesday to help prevent the sex trafficking of children.
The move came as nearly 900 Sisters of St. Joseph gathered for a three-day event at the Millennium.
Executive director of the Federation of Sisters of St. Joseph in the U.S., Kathy McCluskey, says they’re working to inform Americans about the issue of child sex trafficking.
"What we’ve discovered is when you do that people will recognize the horror of it and immediately want to learn what can be done to prevent it at every level," McCluskey said.
Officials at Ameren took questions from shareholders about the utility company's procedures for disposing of coal ash today.
The annual shareholder's meeting was open to all Ameren investors.
Diana Oleskevich works for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. The sisters are part of a group of five institutional investors calling on Ameren to clean up their coal ash disposal procedures.
Oleskevich says Ameren's claim that its 35 coal ash storage ponds comply with current regulations does not satisfy her concerns.
