KC Star shows picture of PeaceWorks activists

The Jan. 15, 2023, Sunday edition of The Kansas City Times included the article “The People’s Power to Petition.” The four-page story led with a picture of long-time PeaceWorks KC members Sharon and Jim Hannah at a 2021 rally for Medicaid expansion. The story’s subtitle was “In a state that reliably elects Republican majorities, voters use ballot measures to pass progressive policies.”

The Hannahs are active in community engagement through the Justice and Peace Action Team of Greater Kansas City, comprised of Midlands and Central Mission Centers of Community of Christ.

Now that he has recently obtained Kansas Medicaid, his eye doctor is telling him it is too late to repair the sight in his right eye, and he will probably never see again out of that eye.
