The Civility Project: Can We Stop the Yelling? (And Should We?)
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.

Learn more—and make your own contribution to civic engagement—when KCPT’s Nick Haines moderates a Consensus-sponsored panel featuring Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II; Reed Chambers, chair of the Tea Party Missouri State Conference; Lana Oleen, former Kansas Senate Majority Leader; and Ronnie Metsker, chairman of the Johnson County Republican Party.
The event also includes findings from focus groups with local residents.
