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.
On March 6, 2015, several of our board members attended the Diversity Banquet hosted for the first time by the LGBT student group at KU Law. Our legal community made a strong showing in support of the event and more money was raised than ever before. Bravo to Leah Terranova for organizing the event and to all of the sponsors!
