What is Safe KC?


Kansas City is our home and like you, we are proud of it. The growing violence in our neighborhoods has us concerned. We all need safer communities. We want to empower others to stand up. 41 Action News will team up with those people and groups working on everyday solutions to keep our families safe. Together, we will make our city stronger. We need your help to turn #KINDKC to #SAFEKC.
