FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- A national civil rights organization plans to unveil two new sizable corporate donations to a job training program created in the aftermath of the fatal Ferguson police shooting.
The National Urban League’s Save Our Sons workforce training program is aimed at residents of Ferguson and surrounding communities in north St. Louis County.
The group says it has received new contributions from AT&T and Anheuser-Busch for the $1.25 million program after earlier donations from Wells Fargo, Monsanto, Emerson and two area banks.
The Urban League’s St. Louis branch has scheduled a Tuesday morning news conference to discuss the training program. County Executive Steve Stenger is among the expected participants.
