Renaming streets and statues in Missouri & the US
Black & Green Wednesdays are sponsored by the Gateway Green Alliance and the Universal African Peoples Organization
ST LOUIS – After George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis on May 25 people across the US have examined whether streets, statues, parks and schools were named after racists. What should be the criteria for renaming? How should new names be determined? What is Teens Taking Action in St. Louis (TTAStL) doing about racism? If you live in University City, Missouri, do you think the streets Pershing, Jackson, Amherst and Wilson should be renamed? Though the webinar is hosted from St. Louis you are welcome to join from anywhere in the US.
To register for the event, email and send the message “Register me for the Renaming Streets Zoom.” You will receive ZOOM information for joining. There is NO COST for registering and joining the program.
