History of Racial Justice in St. Louis
St. Louis was home to Michael Brown, Anthony Lamar Smith, and Antonio Martin who were tragically murdered by police due to systemic oppression, white supremacy, and racial injustice. The loss of Black and Brown lives due to systemic racism remains the most critical issue of our time. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to illustrate massive inequalities in society including the economic, healthcare, and education systems.
ACPA22 will be the 5th anniversary of the Strategic Imperative for Racial Justice and Decolonization. ACPA22 will engage in critical conversations around the Strategic Imperative. We will also act.
