About the event
Continuing our discussions around timely, relevant topics to Kansas City, LIFT KC is proud to welcome Robbie Makinen, CEO of KCATA to share the story behind the monumental push to have Kansas City's public transit system be free to all.
Robbie, who lost his sight seven years ago to a rare condition, is the "visionary" behind this proposal. Hear directly from him as he shares why accessible public transit works for KC's economic growth and how his proposal will create opportunity in Kansas City. It is certain to be a lively, authentic discussion; LIFT KC style.
A special thanks to UMB Bank and Nikki Newton for hosting and catering this event!
