About this Event
When it comes to our legislative processes, who is really in control – local, state or federal lawmakers? This becomes especially important in light of efforts related to issues such as gun control, ridesharing and affordable housing.
By way of example, we know that Kansas City has a problem with gun violence, and while our new Mayor is working to address it with innovative policies, the balance of power between federal, state and local government is complicated in America.
How does a city effectively navigate these dynamics to create safe and healthy communities, especially when there isn’t always agreement among lawmakers? Can Kansas City truly move the needle on topics like gun violence when we run the risk of having local efforts pre-empted at the state and federal level?
Join American Public Square, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and other expert panelists for a discussion about what it takes to drive true change in our communities.
