Ferguson Commission Report Officially Unveiled During News Conference

St. Louis County, MO (KTRS) The Ferguson Commission is recommending major changes in the areas of racial equity and economic gaps in their final report.

The 198 page report, entitled “Forward Through Ferguson: A Path Toward Racial Equity” was officially unveiled Monday afternoon during a news conference. It contains 198 calls to action, which are now being considered by Governor Jay Nixon.

Nixon said he is committed to making sure this work wasn’t done in vain. He also said we are embarking on a path towards progress. The governor quoted Biblical Scripture to describe his hope for this work’s success, “We have begun to work in good faith with thousands of ordinary men and women who want to be part of making things better. Good faith it’s not a phrase I use lightly. “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for….the conviction of things not seen,” So the Good Book says.”

Co-Chair Rich McClure says the issues raised in this report aren’t unique to the St. Louis area. “Our hope in reading this report, it will begin for some, continue for others, a learning process and we’re confident that people will discover things they don’t know, that they’ll be challenged to rethink things they already knew, and they’ll find things they don’t agree with.”

The next step for the Ferguson Commission is to begin the process of selecting an organization or organizations to carry on its work. A request for qualifications will be made in the next couple of weeks.
