About Churches United for Justice
Churches United for Justice is a diverse and growing coalition of 17 churches throughout Wyandotte County.
On June 7, 2022, over 1,000 concerned members of Churches United gathered at Mt. Carmel Church of God in Christ in Kansas City, KS. We pressed our mayor and Unified Government commissioners to prioritize federal stimulus money for two urgent needs:
- An affordable housing and equity trust fund, to reverse the effects of red-lining
- Implementation of group violence intervention, a proven strategy to reduce gun violence.
We won commitments from three local officials at the action in June, and are currently following up to ensure victory on these campaigns.
