Event description

Description

Join us for a special presentation by Kay Barnes former mayor, Kansas City, Missouri (the City’s first woman mayor). Barnes was recently honored with the “Kansas Citian of the Year” Award for 2018.

During Barnes’ two terms in office (1999-2007), downtown’s revival began with the opening of the new H&R Block World Headquarters, the Sprint Arena and the Power & Light District. Other achievements included the Kauffman Center Parking Garage, improvements in the Crossroads District, the conversion of dozens of buildings into lofts and apartments, with thousands of people moving Downtown. Many say she brought a new momentum to Kansas City which continues today.

She was also a strong advocate for minorities, members of the LBGTQ community, and women – she was one of the founders of the Central Exchange and the University of Missouri Women’s Resource Service Center.
