All are welcome, none will be judged, but all are challenged to look beyond ourselves and our notions of how others think about issues of cultural​,​ political and social significance. We are building bridges of communication between the many groups that make up the St​. L​ouis Metropolitan Region by sharing and reflecting on the stories and lives of a diverse group of guests.

Incumbent 20th ward Alderwoman Cara Spencer, displayed the composure and poise expected of a seasoned campaigner, who came very close to winning the last mayor’s race in the city of St. Louis. ———

She currently represents a ward that is 80% African American, which says a lot about her political savvy, as she campaigns for the aldermanic seat in the new 8th ward, which encompasses downtown St. Louis. ———

Alisha Sonnier, currently serves as a member of the St. Louis City School board and is now a candidate for the newly drawn 7th Ward. She was well versed on critical issues facing St. Louis city, with special interest, in supporting our public schools system. ———
