With our partners we have produced two major research reports. 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 was published in May 2014 and addresses African American health disparities in St. Louis.
Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide was published in April 2018 with six St. Louis partners. It presents more than a century of local, state, and federal policies that have contributed to a disturbing geography of segregated housing in the St. Louis region, as well as data and human stories detailing how this geography of inequity jeopardizes the health and well-being of many residents throughout the region.
A 115-page community-driven report on segregation and housing in St. Louis, created in partnership with ArchCity Defenders, Ascend STL Inc., Metropolitan St. Louis Equal Housing and Opportunity Council (EHOC), Empower Missouri, For the Sake of All, Community Builders Network, Team TIF, and others.
Excerpt from the full report containing the 11 key policy recommendations.
Additionally, we assisted the College Hill neighborhood of St. Louis in producing a community-driven report to promote a healthier community through the strategic repurposing of vacant land.
Five policy briefs on health disparities in St. Louis were written in 2013 by a team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis and Saint Louis University. The data and recommendations discussed in the briefs were the backbone of the For the Sake of All report published in 2014.
