When citizens are educated about the decision-making process in policy change, they are empowered to participate in that change.
The Kansas City Equity Network advocates for sustainable and equitable development in the Greater Kansas City region to which all residents contribute and from which all residents benefit. This past Saturday, the Network hosted the Equity Summit, where equity in transportation was the focus. Laura Barrett of the Transportation Equity Network addressed participants after breakfast. Those present also engaged in a panel discussion and break-out sessions.
This partnership between Westside Housing and 12 other organizations will continue to create plans for the future. The vision is that our region will improve development in the city in a way that is fair to all residents and thus, become a healthier and more successful region.

SunSmart Technologies installed brand-new solar panels on the roof of our Firestation No. 9 office building (919 W 24th St). This will help reduce our use of fossil fuels and lower our utilities bills at the same time. Take a look!
We have previously partnered with SunSmart to put solar panels on top of Posada del Sol (our senior apartment building at 17th and Summit). This makes for a combined total of 122 panels!
If you're interested in installing solar panels at your residential or commercial location, contact SunSmart Technologies at (816) 298-7619.
