Kansas City AFSC Year-End Newsletter

We invite you to learn more about AFSC work in Kansas City, which is building and strengthening a movement for social change.

 We are inspired by the youth who participate in the If I Had A Trillion Dollars youth film project, the If I Could Change the World spoken word project and the summer Social Change Institute. Each year we also have college-aged peace interns who do a phenomenal job learning about peace and justice issues and ways to engage and empower high school-aged youth.
