St. Pete 2.0: The state of racial equity in St. Pete [Survey]

Jason Mathis



The St. Petersburg renaissance has been in full swing for more than a decade. We’ve excelled in many areas and struggled in others. In our series St. Pete 2.0, we’re partnering with the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership to explore what lies on the other side of our potential – what will it take to move to the “next level” as a city? Through this series, we’ll dig into specific topics with the hope that you, our thoughtful citizens, will share your insight, experience and wisdom. 

Race is a complicated and emotionally fraught issue. Because it can be hard to talk about racial issues, sometimes it gets left out of community conversations. 

In celebration of Black History Month, we want to use the forum of St. Pete 2.0 to take a snapshot of current community sentiments about race – authentically recognizing our difficult past but also recognizing that most people in St. Pete want to move forward in constructive ways. This edition of St. Pete 2.0 asks Catalyst readers and members of the St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership to assess the state of racial equity in St. Pete.
