Our Purpose is Clear

Build Partnerships in our Community

Unite KC’s mission is to impact minority communities through partnerships with other organizations throughout Kansas City. We unite people across racial lines through communication and education..

Create Opportunities for Growth

We create events, volunteer opportunities, and ways for people to communicate and educate themselves on our shared history.

Promote Understanding

Every gathering promotes understanding and centers on creating community through heart transformation.

Your donation helps to fund organizations doing “One Good Thing” and it sponsors volunteer opportunities and major events throughout the year such as The Underground, The Walk for Unity, Second Saturday, and more.

Unite KC continues to make a profound impact in the community through its partnerships with organizations like the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office which sponsored an expungement fair in November of 2022. Over 80 people had their records expunged and embarked on a new lease on life with newfound employment opportunities and freedoms.

Katy Jennings

Director of Business Strategy, Walz Tetrick Advertising

"While many of the organizations and movements in our culture today who are talking about racial issues feel angry and divisive, Unite KC is making a difference through understanding, love, and kindness. While others may shout at each other, Unite KC is facilitating conversations, relationships, and even friendships with people different from ourselves. Unite KC and Ray Jarrett is playing a critical role in bringing KC together."
