Those who register have an opportunity to win cash awards. Awards will be given for $500, $500 and $1,000.

The event had been postponed and ultimately was moved online due to public health concerns relative to the COVID-19 pandemic. The St. Louis American Foundation’s Salute events – well-attended gatherings held indoors, typically with much social contact – would not be safe during the pandemic.

Sunday with Respect Us

Sunday with Respect Us

Respect Us is a multicultural collective, which formed and protested every day after word spread that a police detective, Joshua Smith, hit a young African American man with his Florissant Police SUV, then beat him up. Protestors demanded that Smith be fired, arrested, and charged.

Last Sunday, Respect Us congregated for dinner and nourished their souls with inspirational music and words before returning to the streets to continue the fight for black and brown lives.
