A Red Circle

A Red Circle Turns Three!!

I founded A Red Circle three years ago in an effort to raise awareness of and address racial inequities in North St. Louis County, MO. It’s been an exciting ride and, despite the current societal challenges, I have faith that the team and I will successfully fulfill A Red Circle’s mission statement, “The holistic betterment of our community; reversing the effects of racism one person and cause at a time.”

Happy Anniversary!! – Erica Williams, Executive Director


A Red Circle, located in Wellston, Missouri at the Stl Partnership Business Center, was founded to address racial injustice and inequality in the North St. Louis County region (“North County”). Its service zip codes are: 63121, 63133, 63134, 63135, 63136, 63137, 63138, 63140, 63031, 63033, 63034, and 63042. Its five focus areas are: employment, education, holistic living, policy, and the arts.  Check out the 2020 Brochure!

Announcements

COVID-19 Update: At A Red Circle, we have switched gears from our regular programming to help meet immediate needs of North County families during this crisis.  Food, stress relief, educational support, and hygiene products are just a few ways our team will support the community.  We welcome volunteers and financial support.

North County Resource Hubs
  • A Red Circle has partnered with St. Peter’s United Church of Christ, 1425 Stein Road, Ferguson, MO  63135 and Zion Traveler’s Missionary Baptist  Church, 351 Chambers Rd, Riverview, MO  63137 as North County Resource Hubs.  As a member of Solidarity Economy Stl, we are coordinating needs and volunteers who can meet needs.  We will direct community members to St. Peter’s on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to Zion Traveler’s on Wednesdays.   We currently have outfitted both hubs with diapers, wipes, and hygiene products.  We are also able to pick up and deliver groceries to families without transportation.  Please use the Contact Us page to reach someone on behalf of a North County resident in need. 

Education Advocacy Coalition
  • The Coalition met on Friday, March 27 to discuss ways A Red Circle can support students, beyond meals.  If you are you interested in helping us, please join the Coalition to receive updates.
