We exist to make Kansas City the best place in the nation for lawyers to practice; we recognize that means helping to make Kansas City the best place for all citizens.

 

We give our time and talents to purposeful projects that help our community’s women and families. Some examples of our local impact include:

  • We support Lazarus Ministries, a non-profit serving the Kansas City urban core, with manhours – painting, serving meals, sorting clothes and more.
  • We host a 5K run/walk that raises money for Dress for Success Kansas City, which provides professional clothing and career counseling for women seeking jobs.
  • We have coordinated local volunteers for Read Across America, a nationwide reading celebration in elementary schools.
  • We have collaborated with others in the legal community for the “Food from the Bar” drive, a benefit for Harvesters – The Community Food Network.
  • We have helped construct homes through Heartland Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build.
  • We challenged our members to perform as many acts of kindness as possible one day a year as part of The Great Kindness Challenge, an initiative of Lucy’s Kids for Peace.

Through volunteer projects, we provide members with opportunities to give back, connect with others and develop leadership skills. Our Community Support Committee coordinates these efforts. Do you have an idea or a cause? Contact us.
