Equality Week Family Picnic August 27th

Thursday, August 27, 5:30pm – 7:30pm
At the Loose Park - Large Shelter, 5200 Pennsylvania Ave. Kansas City, MO 64112
 

Please join us as we celebrate Equality Week in Kansas City.  We'll have picnic fare, cool beverages, games for kids, and fun for all.  We have booked the large shelter in Loose Park to protect us from rain or the sun!  Kansas and Missouri politicians are invited to introduce themselves and say a few words. Kids - practice voting by electing your favorite super hero or heroine!

 

We will also have Jane McClain's Wall of Women’s Achievement display at the event, a 10-panel photo montage that chronicles American women’s journey since winning the vote in 1920. Over 350 women from the fields of art, business, politics, religion science, sports, and technology are identified and their achievements described on the “Wall.” The diverse faces of women from various social-economic groups and walks of life demonstrate create a visual rehearsal of the invaluable contributions women have made to the life of our country as we strive toward full equality.
 

No admission fee, but please bring voluntary donations of cleaning supplies, papergoods, sanitary supplies or diapers for Operation Breakthough families.  Side dishes or desserts encouraged!
