Tangazo is a meeting place where we share ideas and explore efforts to improve our human conditions and quite simply make our lives better. 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.

Join host Hank Thompson as he talks with his panel of guests about ward reduction, redistricting, and how to go about avoiding conflicts of interest and unfavorable political actions.

Today’s guests are Kathleen Farrell, city unit leader of the League of Women Voters of Metro Saint Louis; LaShanna Lewis of the group Show Me Integrity, which was responsible for the development of Proposition R; and political consultant Tim Person.

The panel discusses the potential dissatisfaction that would result from the drawing of districts without regarding the nuances of each community as they currently stand in their wards. Will white judges be conscious of the skepticism around their ability to tactfully handle the future of African American politics?
