Kansas City, MO (April 21, 2016) – The Kansas City Council recently pledged its commitment to the nationwide movement Start By Believing. Start by Believing is a public awareness campaign by End Violence Against Women International; leading the way toward a positive community response to survivors of sexual violence.
Following the April 13, 2014, shooting tragedy at the Jewish Community Campus and Village Shalom in Overland Park, Kansas, a group of caring individuals decided that the community has the power to outshine and overcome such senseless acts of hate. SevenDays is a challenge for young and old, to embrace diversity across races, religions, and cultures. Through three events, Faith, Love & Song, Faith, Love & Kindness and Faith, Love & Walk, we hope to promote understanding and encourage kindness to Make a Ripple to Change the World.
