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.
