Members of the St. Louis Missouri Community say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"

As a member of the St. Louis, Missouri community, I invite all members to stand together against the racial, religious and other intolerance that Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric promotes. It is putting our Latino, Muslim-American, those with disabilities, and other community members directly at risk.

There is no place for this kind of discrimination at St. Louis, Missouri or in America.

As a community, we affirm the values that make us who we are: diversity, openness and compassion.

Join me in saying: Donald Trump is not who America is, and he is not who St. Louis, Missouri is.

Why is this important?

We are better than this. We are more open-minded, more rational, more loving people than the crass, ignorant bigots that Trump seeks so fervently to appeal to. I have lived in this city all my life and I love our city, and I know from long experience, that *we are better than this.*
