The Commission's Work

Meet the Commissioners

The Ferguson Commission is an empowered, independent and diverse group that will study the underlying social and economic conditions underscored by the unrest in the wake of the death of Michael Brown. Openness and transparency will be cornerstones of the Commission’s work.

The charge of the Ferguson Commission is to help chart a new path toward healing and positive change for the residents of the St. Louis region. However, as these challenges are not unique to our region, the Commission looks to serve as a role model and offer best practices to communities across the country.

The Commission members have the responsibility – and the opportunity – to hear from people from diverse backgrounds and all walks of life, and to form concrete recommendations for making this region a stronger, fairer place for everyone.
