Kansas City Chapter

The Kansas City chapter has a dynamic board consisting of community people who are passionate about the welfare of their fellow citizens. They involve themselves in many forms of action towards social justice including advocacy work, rallies, calls, walk-backs, petitions and much more. We work to engage with our members and others in the community to stand along-side to continue to educate and inspire to be a part of social change.

Every First Friday of the month, the Empower Missouri Kansas City Chapter hosts a Forum called the First Friday Forum. Each month tackles issues facing our most vulnerable citizens. Topics include, Urban Policing, Hunger, Education, Housing, Fair Wage. The announcement of each month's topic is provided up to 3 weeks before the forum through email and press releases.
