Research Areas

We are researching 5 potential campaigns, and we need you to share your ideas and commitments so that we can bring justice to the center of our community together. All are welcome to fill out the Interest Form below. If you have any questions, please contact Stacy Jespersen at [email protected].

Beirne Park and Racial Injustice

The story of how Beirne Park came to be is a story of racist policies and practices , including housing discrimination.  In this campaign we would seek to tell the true story of the history of the park and do what we can to right a past injustice. Segregated housing patterns is one of the primary causes of wealth disparity for African Americans when compared to the general population.

Do Not Stand Idly By: A Campaign to Curb Gun Violence

By partnering with local police departments and mayors, this national campaign seeks to influence gun manufactures to take greater responsibility in the sale of their weapons and to push out onto the market safer guns using “smart gun” technologies. To learn more visit http://donotstandidlyby.org.

Do Not Forget: An Investigation into Holocaust Education and Anti-Semitism

The Washington Post recently reported that two thirds of all millennials in the United States do not know what Auschwitz is.  This campaign will seek to investigate how the Holocaust is currently being taught in area schools, and if there is found to be a lack of solid education about the Holocaust, we will work with schools to address this.

Get Out the Vote: Limiting Voter Suppression and Discrimination in Missouri

This campaign will train Shaare Emeth members to register voters at Shaare Emeth and in areas of St. Louis that have low voter registration.  It will also train members to be present at the polls on Election Day to educate voters on their voting rights.

Raise the Age: A Criminal Justice Campaign

Missouri is one of only five states in the nation that automatically prosecutes all 17 year old’s as adults – even for minor offenses.  This state-wide campaign seeks to raise the age to 18.  Doing so will improve public safety, save taxpayer dollars, treat families fairly and get better outcomes for vulnerable young people.
