This week we took a step forward in St. Louis.
Governor Jay Nixon announced that he will appoint a Ferguson Commission to look at what happened from every perspective and recommend ways to move forward. His point was important. The issues that sparked the protests that erupted in our backyard are the struggles of the entire nation. The world is watching, and it is critical that we get it right.
We must look deeply at the underlying causes of the unrest and have conversations that are long overdue. This is a concept I am championing for the St. Louis region.

Together there is a way forward, but only together.
