About

MORE2 was created in late 2004 as an interfaith social justice organization reflecting different cultural backgrounds, faith traditions, skin colors and economic means.  We are united in our commitment to transforming our communities by creating a metropolitan area that embraces all people and offers everyone the opportunity to achieve their greatest potential.

 As people of faith, we are called to break down barriers that divide us along the lines of race and economic status.  We know that what affects any one of us ultimately affects all of us.  We are called to be agents of change in our communities.

 We join hands through building intentional relationships among the people in our faith communities.  This builds broad grass roots participation so we can walk the path to social justice for our great metropolitan area.  Together, with our faith as our guide, we claim the power to transform our bi-state metro region by overcoming obstacles to racial and economic equity in Kansas City.  Rather than providing services or programs, we work to change policies in ways that promote racial and economic equity in the Kansas City metro region. 

 We are affiliated with the Gamaliel Foundation, an organizing network of affiliates in 21 states across the United States, in South Africa and in the United Kingdom. Gamaliel represents over a million members of various faiths and cultures who work for social justice.
