Ferguson (KSDK) – Despite brutal heat on Saturday, West Florissant was more active than it has been in several days. The atmosphere was positive, as many people were there to take part in the Heal STL movement.
Organizers and participants of the movement made signs and marched along the roadway. They also helped people register to vote.
Among city leaders participating in the effort, was St. Louis Board of Alderman President Lewis Reed.
Reed noted that getting citizens to vote is step number one towards making some change. To help get across the message, he marched with a group of a couple of dozen people bearing the message 'STL4U.'
Read mentioned what that meant was that law enforcement, lawmakers, and the people of the greater St. Louis region needed to all join together, despite their race, to enact change.
