Please join us on Monday, January 28th for our first meeting of 2019.  While Kansas City, MO is appearing at or near the top of lists of coolest places in the live, how are people who have historically been excluded or denied sharing in the enrichment, development, and growth of our diverse and geographically large city? KC Mayoral candidates will have an opportunity to share their plans for improving quality of life for ALL Kansas Citians, with an emphasis on empowering those who’ve been left out. Guests will have a chance to ask questions of the candidates. Please arrive at 5:15 pm to purchase your own food and drinks. The program will begin at 5:30 pm

So far, confirmed participants are (in alphabetical order):  Alissia Canady,  Phil Glynn, Jolie Justus, Quinton Lucas, Jermaine Reed, Scott Taylor, Scott Wagner.
