Candid Conversation with Erica Henderson, Executive Director, St. Louis Promise Zone

(ULI Members Only Event)

Please join us for a Candid Conversation with Erica Henderson, Executive Director of the St. Louis Promise Zone at the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership.

The federal Promise Zone program designates high-poverty urban, rural and tribal communities as Promise Zones in order to increase economic activity, improve educational outcomes, reduce serious and violent crime, invest in transformative development and improve health and wellness.

The St. Louis Promise Zone, designated in 2015, encompasses portions of North St. Louis City and North St. Louis County and partners with local leaders to give communities proven tools to rebuild and put people back to work. The 10-year Promise Zone designation is a catalyst for ongoing collaboration and change that will drive regional growth and create a better, more inclusive St. Louis region.

Join us October 24 to hear directly from Erica what the Promise Zone has meant for St. Louis, how the real estate community can participate in the effort, and what is still on the horizon for these neighborhoods within our community.

About the Candid Conversation Series: Candid Conversations is a ULI members-only program, limited to 15 ULI members. Pre-registration is required.
