President, St. Louis Board of Alderman
Megan Ellyia Green moved to St. Louis in 2005 to participate in the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs. Upon graduating, she taught middle school in St. Louis Public Schools, before transitioning into the nonprofit sector where she saw up close the real-world impact that policies and politics have on people.
Megan has represented the 15th ward since 2014. Since taking office, Megan has become the progressive champion of St. Louis, fighting for a higher minimum wage, civilian oversight of our police department, reproductive rights for people who can become pregnant, protections for victims of domestic violence, marijuana legalization, and responsible development with community benefits, while helping to elect other progressives to office.
