Season 2 wraps up with outgoing President & CEO of Deaconess Foundation and incoming President & CEO of National Children’s Defense Fund, Rev. Dr. Starsky Wilson. Tune in now wherever you get your podcasts to hear our hosts' moving conversation.
The latest @underthearchpod features a great conversation with @RevDrStarsky, @iKaylaReed of @ActionSTL, and our E.D. Blake Strode! @RevDrStarsky, will certainly be missed in #STL at @deaconessfound. No doubt, his dynamic leadership will continue at @ChildDefender!

Today we learned once again that some of our elected officials prefer to stand in the way of progress instead of honoring their promises. We must hold them accountable. Call @PresReed at (314)622-4114 and @LydaKrewson at (314)622-3201 to demand they keep their word and close
It’s past time to close the workhouse.
Remember when @PresReed said this? It is Lewis Reed's responsibility to make sure the Board Of Aldermen honor the promise they made during that 28-0 UNANIMOUS vote to close the Workhouse. Help hold him accountable by calling 3146224144 and demanding the Workhouse be closed.
Today @AnnieRiceStL stood with @CLOSEWorkhouse and moved to introduce a supplemental appropriation that would defund the workhouse. In order to do this the 2/3 of the Board of Aldermen had to vote to suspend the rules.
We owe it to @CLOSEWorkhouse to honor our commitment to see our unanimously passed Ord. 71217 through. This bill shows what reallocating funding towards community needs, root causes of crime, and supportive services can look like. Introduction so we can discuss was the ask today.
The Workhouse, by law, is supposed to close in 45 days and @LydaKrewson is still failing to do her job. Where is the report from Dr. Echols? Where is the report from BPS? Why hasn't @LydaKrewson directed her administration to follow the ordinance that she signed into law??
