Watch what is happening in Ferguson. Pay attention to those who are present, and those who are not. Support those defending our rights and engaging in peaceful protest. On nextSTL, we write about new apartment buildings, historic preservation, transportation, and more. While covering these topics can provide context for how we live as a community, and can be interesting and important in their own right, they pale in comparison to the importance of issues revealed by ongoing events in Ferguson.
We will announce a couple events in the near future, and return to writing about the small decisions that shape our physical, economic, and social community soon, but for now, please follow events via Twitter, Facebook, local radio, TV news, national and international publications. Consider what you may be able to do to make St. Louis a better place.
