Be part of the movement to achieve our North Star: Zero racial disparities in infant mortality by 2033 - Join the FLOURISH Community Leaders Cabinet.

What is the FLOURISH Community Leaders Cabinet?
St. Louis’ infant mortality rate (the death of babies under the age of one) is one of the worst in the U.S. — and Black babies are three times more likely to die before their first birthdays than white babies. The Community Leaders Cabinet works to better understand and improve the conditions in communities across the St. Louis region that lead to babies not thriving. The Cabinet will play a vital role in shaping how our region thinks about solutions. FLOURISH is committed to lifting up the voices of those most impacted by racial and social inequalities to generate solutions and drive change.

The Cabinet will:
  • Identify and determine FLOURISH’s core priorities
  • Promote community inclusion in funding priorities and influence decision-making efforts
  • Provide input into solutions that help black families flourish and thrive
  • Mobilize community networks to foster engagement and build resilience
Who Will Serve On The Cabinet?
  • Residents of St. Louis City or St. Louis County who care about our children and community’s future
