Youth Summit On Race Relations & Crime

Brad Choat

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – It was the fourth of its kind in the nation.

St. Louis held a “Congressional Conversations on Race” session, Saturday, sponsored by the Faith and Politics Institute.

Missouri Congressman Lacy Clay (D-St. Louis) hosted youth from local schools and community groups for a daylong chat about race relations and youth violence, “Let’s steer the conversation away from debate and blame toward listening, understanding, shared humanity, and cooperation.”

Clay said he’s hopeful the youth of St. Louis will have ideas for adults on how to stop violent crime and improve relations between all races.

The St. Louis session followed ones previously held in California, Louisiana, and North Carolina.
