About this Event
HomeGrown StL invites you to our upcoming Town Hall: Who is safe in St. Louis? Examining Why Black Male Personal Safety is Critical for A Better St. Louis.
This collaborative effort between HomeGrown StL, the Clark-Fox Policy Institute, and community partners will highlight the widespread impacts of Black male safety on individuals and systems, and explore tools for actionable change.
As part of this Town Hall, HomeGrown is conducting a survey with Black boys and men 12 years of age and older to better understand their perceived personal safety and personal safety practices. All eligible participants who complete the survey will have a chance to win one of eight $20 gift cards for their participation.
