What We’re Reading at REACH

In our work, we come across a number of news items and reports related to the REACH Foundation’s funding priorities and strategic goals. “What we’re reading at REACH” is a collection of links to noteworthy articles that have caught our attention.

The Urban League of Greater Kansas City released a 2015 “Picture of Health: The State of Black Kansas City,”  report on the health, education, economic, and social/community conditions of black and Hispanic Kansas Citians. The report presents a range of data which together lay out a picture of both improvements and persistent disparities.

The report includes a special section on health, as well as a collection of essays on education, economic, social justice and civic engagement.

Read the report, and view a taped discussion with local civic and public affairs’ leaders on the finding. KCPT Ruckus, 2.20.15
