Irene Caudillo, President, and CEO of El Centro, alone with several Commissioners, Melissa Bynum, Brian McKiernan, Harold Johnson, and Christian Ramirez, have worked to make Wyandotte County a Safe and Welcoming Community. On Monday, January 24, it was approved by the Standing Committee that Wyandotte County would become a Safe and Welcoming Community.
The Unified Government of Wyandotte County has appointed a legal team working on language to change the city statutes in KCK that would allow this community to become a Safe and Welcoming community. There is also a possibility of Community IDs cards being distributed by a non-profit organization to all of those residents and students who cannot acquire a traditional Identification card.
The next step is for the Safe And Welcoming Statute has to go before the full commission.
