Ferguson Commission Releases Findings At Seventh Meeting

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)  The Ferguson Commission is continuing it’s work to bring about positive change for the community. At Monday night’s meeting at the Missouri History Museum, the Ferguson Commission released it’s research and data from its first 100 days of activity.

The data was released from six categories: Citizen Law Enforcement Relations, Municipal Governance, Municipal Courts, Education, Economic Opportunity, and Racial and Ethnic Relations.

After the presentation, commission members had the opportunity to share what they’ve learned while serving on the commission.  Rasheen Aldridge says he was aware of African-Americans being targeted by police, but he didn’t realize to what extent.

One of the findings showed that in Missouri, African-Americans were sixty-six-percent more likely than whites to be stopped based upon their respective proportion driving age population in 2013.

Commission leaders say they plan to hold meetings with communities on a weekly basis to address these issues.

The full report from the meeting is available online at www.stlpositivechange.org.
