Community conversation on Ferguson taking place Tuesday morning

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( – Almost a year after riots and unrest, community leaders plan to hold a community conversation Tuesday morning to discuss what progress has been made in Ferguson.

Since the death of Michael Brown on August 9, many efforts have been made to make changes in Ferguson.  Seven months after Brown’s death, the Department of Justice found police and courts in Ferguson routinely violated the civil rights of African-Americans.

On Tuesday, groups like the Ferguson Commission, business committees and residents will come together to talk about how to implement changes. The group plans to address various issues involving the court system.

“Now that we have all of the data and tons of information. We have information on the court systems. We have information on the police departments, we have information on youth development and all of these things,” said Board of Aldermen President Lewis Reed.  “The next step is what do we do with it. So one of the things I would like to see come out of this anniversary is a solid plan on where to go next.”

Tuesday’s meeting will be held at the Missouri Botanical Garden from 7:30 to 9 a.m.
