A Red Circle

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”). Our service zip codes are: 63121, 63133, 63134, 63135, 63136, 63137, 63138, 63140, 63031, 63033, 63034, and 63042. Our five focus areas are: employment, education, holistic living, policy, and the arts.

"The best way to visualize A Red Circle is to consider north St. Louis County ("North County"), its primary demographic, and its economic health. Where do you start? With schools that need funding, with vacant homes that need purchasing for tax revenue to fund the schools? With adults who need jobs and income to purchase the homes that fund the schools? With healthier food options to attract new businesses to hire the people who need jobs to buy the homes to fund the schools? With increasing the arts availability which adds flavor to everything? It's a circle, with no true beginning and no end. These disparities are the product of systemic and structural racism, but all blood is red."
- Founder and Executive Director Erica R. Williams
