Join American Public Square and SevenDays 2017 for a Dinner at the Square on Violence, Community and Faith: Connecting the Dots. A panel representing government, faith and community groups will have a fact-based, civil conversation about ways in which the entire community can come together and work to address violence and hate and achieve peace and collegiality in an often divisive world. The evening will be moderated by KCPT’s Nick Haines. Panelists include Kansas City Councilwoman Jolie Justus and Rosilyn Temple of Mothers in Charge. The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 19 at Pierson Auditorium, located in the Atterbury Student Success Center on the UMKC Campus. Click here for program details and tickets.

Following the April 13, 2014 tragedy at the Jewish Community Campus and Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas, a group of caring individuals decided that we, as a community, have the power to outshine and overcome such senseless acts of hate. SevenDays® is a challenge for young and old, to embrace diversity across race, religion and culture. Through a variety of events hosted each day of SevenDays® Make a Ripple, Change the World you will be engaged, enriched and enlightened.
