KC Fair Housing Solutions
Linwood United Church
Saturday 10AM
In July and August, the Kansas City Equity Network hosted a series of Community Engagements about fair housing in Kansas City. The feedback that we received at those meetings were used to come up with proposed solutions to Kansas City's housing issues!

We have been working hard to come up with a plan to address the problems that were brought up in our first round of meetings, and we need your feedback! What did we get right? What can we still do better? Please bring friends, you do not have to have been present at the first meeting to provide feedback at our solution-oriented meeting. And this time we will be having pizza!
