Energize St. Louis Civic Pride!

St. Louis has experienced an impressive resurgence over the past decade including a revitalized urban core, a burgeoning entrepreneurial spirit and scores of new cultural, recreational and entertainment options for residents and visitors alike. The sense of momentum in St. Louis is palpable. Yet, some perceptions of St. Louis have not kept pace with the reality of the renaissance our community is experiencing.

The St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation is amplifying STL’s transformation by taking our case to businesses, schools, social clubs and residents through a variety of tactics including civic pride training, educational curricula, events, marketing and social media. Our goal is nothing short of a cultural transformation to create a culture of confidence and competitiveness to propel our growth and quality of life.

To join our movement and get involved with the St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation, contact AJ Sander at asander@explorestlouis.com.
