Tour Partners

Lt. Johnson from St. Louis Metropolitan Police discusses rights and responsibilities with Stitchers

Pick the City UP Tour hopes to pair arts and culture with community engagement and public health education. Story Stitchers will draw people to your event with live performances and screenings. YOU can take it a step further if you wish!

Community sites are encouraged to invite related public health care vendors to your event to help make these resources more available to your community members.

This page lists Tour Partners for Community Organizers who are working on a Tour event.

Each of the Tour Partners listed below either provides a public service or has expressed an interest in working with community organizers to come to a Tour event. Please feel welcome to contact any of the organizations listed below as you organize your community event. Community organizers may add their own contacts and invite vendors who are not on this list. Program choices must adhere to the mission of Saint Louis Story Stitchers and the Tour to strengthen communities.

Community sites serve as the hosts and event organizers and are responsible for getting any required permits in place for their event. Events can be small and targeted or community sites can use them to develop audiences and partnerships.

Join the tens of thousands of American moms who are saying ENOUGH to gun violence. Help us fight the epidemic that is killing nearly 7 kids and teens every day. Here’s how you can take action right now to make our country safer.
