I hope you will click on the Link below, which takes you to the White House “We the People” site, and sign the Petition which seeks social justice for one of America’s most challenged urban areas.


It would also be greatly appreciated if you sent this to as many people as possible with the request that they also do the same.


CaptureAnyone living in the USA can sign the Petition.

In the coming weeks the President has a decision to make about where to locate a proposed $1.6 billion federal facility–a facility that will be home to the National Geospatial Agency (NGA).

The choices are a 100 acre area located in the most distressed part of the City of St. Louis or 100 acres of farm land located in Illinois adjacent to Scott Air Force Base.

The existing NGA facility has been located in the City of St. Louis for more than 60 years.

The Petition simply asks that the President, when making his selection, follow Presidential Executive Order 12072 which directs that any new dollars for federal facilities be spent in our urban areas.

The selection of the St. Louis inner city site will be a game changer for St. Louis.

Thank you for your consideration.
