FOCUS
St. Louis is divided by systemic racism and economic and social inequities that have grown rather than being rooted out over the years. I focus on breaking down these barriers by harnessing the city’s assets and understanding the role of transportation planning in community development. I further develop tools and processes for inclusive, collaborative planning to create healthy communities by using data and people’s lived experiences. I work as a leader in creating a process whereby decisions are made through the lens of racial equity and in providing an opportunity for true progress rather than perpetuating the status quo.

MORE ABOUT GRACE
I work as a catalyst in changing the way we plan for our communities by applying a health and racial equity lens to equitable development. To do this in a just way, I work alongside communities to recognize historical circumstances and the current conditions necessary to achieve equity.
