#ForMetroEast exists to serve the communities of the Metro East of St. Louis, to unite perspectives, and to be an ally for all people. We are FOR you. Too often in our polarized culture, people are known by what they’re AGAINST - against liberals or conservatives, the 1% or the poor, the LGBTQ community or the church, millennials or boomers. You name it, someone’s against it. We, on the other hand, want to be known by what (and who) we are FOR.
We are FOR the Metro East.
Our Next #ForMetroEast Serve Day is set for October 18.
