Communities Creating Opportunity (CCO)
2400 Troost Ave, Kansas City, Missouri 64108
IT'S TIME. For too long, Kansas City's poorest areas have been neglected by the city government and private powers alike. Only now, with the passing of the 1/8th cent sales tax to benefit underserved communities and an interest in redevelopment growing, do we have a real chance to strike at the heart of poverty.
CCO is inviting neighborhood leaders, concerned residents, clergy, and other committed spirits to regularly meet to organize and strategize around reinvestment. How can we force the city to prioritize properly? How can we lift up the neighborhoods with greatest need? How can we avoid gentrification?
It's time for Kansas City to shift its investment priorities away from areas that are already doing well and toward other spaces according to their needs! Join us.
