The Midwest Alternative Family Alliance and KC LEGAL joined together on March 7 for a community centered educational presentation to inform attendees on LGBT legal issues. Two of our board members, Aaron House and Madeline Johnson, presented alongside other members of the legal community and were instrumental in the event’s success. Topics included family law, name changes, estate planning, and others. Our thanks to the speakers, organizers, and attendees!

UMKC Pride Breakfast

UMKC’s annual Pride Breakfast was a smashing success this year! KC LEGAL had the pleasure of hosting a table and hearing keynote speaker Tony Kushner expound on his creative process, politics, and the importance of supporting youth on the morning of March 12, 2015. All together, over $80,000 was raised to fund scholarships for LGBT students at UMKC, particularly those in crisis who have been abandoned by their families.
