About UNITE KC

It Began with a Text

On June 5th, 2020 Dayton Moore seized on a cultural moment and sent the following text: “What’s happening in our country is wrong and we need to come together. I don’t know what it looks like or how we do it, but I’m ready.” And, with that brief statement of conviction, Unite KC was born.

Our Approach

What does coming together look like?

We believe that human beings working together for the common good, treating every person with dignity, and honoring each other’s God-given uniqueness is the only true path to racial reconciliation. This requires meaningful interactions, taking actions together for our community and working toward a common purpose. These activities put us on that path to transforming hearts and societal change.

Our Strategy

How can we create those practical actions to connect people to work together and transform hearts?

Simply put, we will:

  • Identify organizations, businesses, Nonprofits, churches, and government entities that are currently serving minority communities and work with them to create a list of actionable needs in those communities.
  • Recruit Kansas City companies and citizens who agree there must be a better way to address this issue.
  • Connect all those people, companies and organizations, so together, they can do One Good Thing.

“What’s happening in our country is wrong and we need to come together. I don’t know what it looks like or how we do it, but I’m ready.”
