Mr. Washington is a one man crusade against crime with no government funding yet he's putting together bi-lingual metro-wide communication effort. Meanwhile, KCMO taxpayer subsidized groups have clearly proven ineffective given historic murder spikes.

Meanwhile, Mr. Washington has national standing and a social media following of tens of thousands who support his mission.
Credit goes to volunteer Brenda Ortiz for starting the push to translate a lot of Mr. Washington's info for Spanish speakers.
