About Us

St. Louis Urbanists is a grassroots, non-hierarchical organization guided by our mission statement and principles where projects are managed by semi-independent Working Groups, and decisions are made by collective votes. To see exactly how we’re organized, take a look here.

Below is the current list of Working Groups. If you’re interested in getting involved with any of them, check out our discord or attend one of our monthly meetings.
