Social Justice For Kansas City Drivers

ACTUALLY, for folks who might have earned a new job or are trying to make a fresh start . . . This is one of the most useful charities that we've seen develop as of late . . .

For a multitude of reasons, the Kansas City Community Bail Fund (KCCBF) estimates that thousands of people in the area are driving with a suspended license, without insurance or with no license at all.
