This is What Democracy Sounds Like

This is What Democracy Sounds Like is a presentation of Metropolitan Congregations United in St. Louis, MO. MCU is a community organization that brings together religious congregations, community groups, and individuals to work for a common purpose: to create a better life for all residents of the St. Louis region.


We work at the intersection of race, economy, political power, gender, and the structures of oppression at work within us individually, within our organization and within the community.


We are working towards building people’s control of the government, building community control of the economy, expanding the public sphere, and creating structural racial equity.

In this episode, listen to the personal stories of MCU organizers about the work over the past year. This work cannot happen without the financial support of the community. You can participate by going to https://mcustlouis.org/give/

Recently, a group of mothers who support MCU heard the national call to action following the Nov election. They challenged MCU to match their donation of $20,020 and build our financial power through new sustainers, or monthly donors. Our sustainers are critically important to our work and their donations go directly to those working on one of our 4 campaigns; sacred votes, break the school to prison pipeline, ex-incarcerated people organizing and fighting for environmental justice in St Louis.
