Equitable St. Louis' mission is to empower residents to drive racially equitable development in the St. Louis region through Community Benefits Agreements that are community-based, legally binding, and enforceable by the community. The coalition advocates for policy level implementation by providing education tools, data, and support to community members, neighborhood organizations, institutions, and local government.


We believe that St. Louis must address our regional inequities in order to grow. We will prioritize transparent, inclusive, and racially equitable development that invests in historically disenfranchised neighborhoods, particularly communities of color.

    • Affected community representation leading the negotiation process

    • Legally binding agreements

    • Enforceable by the community         

  • Racial Equity

  • Transparency

  • Equitable and Inclusive Development
