KC Mothers in Charge will host a neighborhood celebration to commemorate the conclusion of another Why Are We So Angry? community engagement project. The event will be held for the tenants of Greenleaf Apartment Complex, 5224 E. 12th Street, Kansas City, Mo., noon – 3 p.m.

Food, music, and vendors will be on site to assist Greenleaf’s residents with resume creation and job applications, to provide information about available services, and more. Representatives from the Kansas City Police Department, the Kansas City Missouri Health Department, Sheffield Neighborhood Association, Mattie Rhodes Center, Evergy, Spire, Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas, and FedEx will be in attendance to provide guidance and resources to the tenants, as well.

Through the Why Are We So Angry? project, KC Mothers in Charge seeks to address the fear, anger, distrust and conflict that exists among families, neighbors and law enforcement where there has been a high incidence of gun-violence and homicide by focusing on anti-retaliation, conflict resolution, and encouraging neighborhood residents to call the police or TIPS Hotline.

KC Mothers in Charge’s community outreach and engagement work is funded, in part, by the Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods grant program.

Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser for North Blue Ridge Neighborhood at 4 p.m. $7 for salad, spaghetti, bread, drink and dessert. $25 for a family of 4. 10% discount on tickets purchased before June 18. Call 816-223-6826.
