We are a resident-led council that gathers information, advises elected officials, and advocates for the best interests of residents in the Normandy schools footprint in North St. Louis County.

Our priorities include:

  • Education – We support early childhood education and increased childcare subsidies. We also support fair and equitable processes related to charter schools in Missouri and the 24:1 Community.
  • Health – We partner with other organizations to support the equitable design and implementation of Medicaid expansion across Missouri.
  • Public Safety – We advocate for crime reduction in our neighborhoods via specific community-based strategies. Strengthening relations between residents and police is one of our highest priorities.
  • Housing – We support the preservation of affordable housing, addressing vacancy and environmental safety, and passing policy protections for tenants (including eviction moratoriums and rent relief due to prolonged hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic).

One of our highlights each year is 24:1 Community Advocacy Day at the Missouri state capitol.
