KC LEGAL invites you to the Inaugural Unity Event Reception to celebrate diversity and inclusion in the Kansas City legal community!

The event will be held at KCMBA, 2300 Main St., Kansas City, MO 64108

Mayor Sly James will join us and will recognize Jolie Justus along with past recipients of the Sly James Diversity and Inclusion Award.  Beginning in 2016, KCMBA’s Diversity Section, in conjunction with the Presidents of Kansas City’s diverse bar associations, including KC LEGAL, the Jackson County Bar Association, the Asian American Bar Association of Kansas City, the Association for Women Lawyers, and the Hispanic Bar Association of Greater Kansas City, established this award for members of the Kansas City area legal community for their contributions to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

In celebration, the evening will include music by Beau Bledsoe, an artist who plays Tango, Flamenco and classical music as he seeks to integrate different musical cultures with diverse audiences, and will feature a diverse array of appetizers and signature drinks.  Please click here to RSVP.
