Quick answer: The Reform Project a worthless and typical Kansas City anti-crime public relations effort that doesn't involve any original ideas and merely represents a bit of investment into classy web design and typical community payouts.
The mission statement . . .
Enough is enough.
All Kansas Citians deserve to live their lives freely without fear of violence. Curbing violent crime in our community will require a years-long, multi-faceted approach.
The Reform Project framework was created in response to staggering rates of violent crime in our community. Each member of our community is different, with their own wants, needs, and goals—and we must treat them as such. Opportunity looks different for every individual. Rehabilitation looks different for every individual. There isn’t a singular approach to solving crime—but we know for sure that we cannot simply arrest our way out of this problem.
The coalition assembled here each brings a vital perspective to this important work, and focuses on its own area of expertise. By getting the right people in the room, tracking and sharing the right information, we can—and we will—change the future of Kansas City.
Sadly, all of THAT is merely the work of locals who can access CSS stylesheets have have access to mid-level PR firms with a few B-list out-of-state college grads on staff.
