This project aims to publicly expose the "Power Behind the Police," aka the St. Louis 1%, and illuminate how they use networks, personal relationships, and organizations to maintain their power.
We're kicking off this project on June 29th by announcing our first list of the St. Louis 1% -- the top 7 CEOs of the region. From June 29th to July 3rd in the lead up to the Veiled Prophet’s Fair St. Louis July 4th celebration, we will #UnveilTheProfit of the St. Louis region and hold all the CEOs on the list accountable by visiting them in person. Our timing is not a coincidence. The Veiled Prophet organization is a clear example of the organized network of the elite in St. Louis -- a group for just CEOs, politicians and the St. Louis 1% to network and socialize.
This website is a resource for activists in the region. It is also a living document--we will be adding individuals to the St. Louis 1% list every few weeks. This project is supported by Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE), a grassroots organization fighting for economic, climate, and racial justice in St. Louis, Missouri.
