Join in efforts to organize sustainable political power for people affected by housing injustice in Kansas City.


Tara Raghuveer, Director of KC Tenants/Kansas City Eviction Project and Housing Campaign Director at People’s Action, will summarize her six-year investigation of the economic and racial injustice in housing across our five-county metro area. She is leading efforts to stave off exorbitant rent rates, fight unprincipled landlords and organize a tenant group into a political force. 

Raghuveer graduated from Harvard College. She is an Australian-born Indian-American immigrant who grew up in Kansas City.

Sponsored by the JCCC Common Read Committee and the JCCC English/Journalism Division as part of Voices from Home, programming for the JCCC Common Read book Voices from the Rust Belt.
