Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide is the product of a collaborative partnership involving ArchCity Defenders, Ascend STL, Metropolitan St. Louis Equal Housing Opportunity Council (EHOC), Empower Missouri, For the Sake of All, Invest STL, and Team TIF with funding from the Missouri Foundation for Health and Wells Fargo. The report 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.
We hope that this report will be successful in fostering discussion around affordable and inclusive communities for all in our region and will help educate policy makers, city planners, and community members. We envision this report as a tool to push forward the equitable housing agenda in St. Louis.
