Stand Together KC

Local leaders want to share a message that the Kansas City community is standing together against racism, religious persecution, hate and violence.

Leaders of faith in the Kansas City community are coming together to discuss what we can do to stand up for our neighbors and against the hate and intimidation espoused by groups who promote racism, religious persecution, hate and violence.

“Our goal,” Church of the Resurrection Senior Pastor Adam Hamilton explains, “is that our community be informed about these groups, and encouraged to stand together in the face of the kind of fear, intimidation and hate these groups foster.” The Kansas City area has seen this hate firsthand in the killing of Dr. William Corporon, Reit Underwood, and Terri LaManno in 2014 and Srinivas Kuchibhotla earlier this year.

Through information, experiences and discussions, we hope to help people identify what it looks like to stand together and to articulate a response when they hear degrading remarks, to renounce intolerance, and to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
