Reimagining STL’s Economy : Community Feedback Day

March 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CDT


Reimagining STL’s Economy: Building an Economy Where All Can Thrive.
We invite you to join us on Saturday, May 4 for Community Feedback Day as we report on and react to what the solution teams have been working on. This will be a key community feedback and input opportunity that will shape the final version of The Playbook.

There will be feedback and voting/polling on the critical Playbook components (values, ToC, outcomes, and solutions). Solutions teams will then review and utilize feedback to inform final decisions.

Who We Are

The Community Wealth Action Group (CWAG), a coalition of St. Louis, MO and East St. Louis, IL community members seek to reimagine STL’s economy through a radically inclusive design process, leading to a Community Wealth Building (CWB) Playbook. The CWB Playbook will reflect diverse solutions, from policies to programs and resource allocations to narrative shifts. The design process and CWB Playbook aim to build on existing efforts and plans while prioritizing a community wealth-building framework.

“The problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The racial wealth gap is leading to a day where the majority of Black and Latinx households are projected to have $0 in wealth. Generations of wealth stripping from and exploitation of marginalized communities – from slavery to redlining – can’t be solved with a single program, policy, or commitment to “inclusion.” The economy is deeply flawed, from its origin story to how it operates today. We need to understand our history and root causes of continued racial economic disparities and also think about what new theories can drive new outcomes and what new policies, programs, and mental models can advance us to a day where more communities are well and wealthy.
