“We join people across the country and around the world in mourning the loss of Reit Underwood, his grandfather William Corporon, and Terri LaManno. The Not In Our Town community stands firmly with the Jewish community of the Kansas City area, and with Jewish people everywhere. Love is stronger than fear and hate.

Not In Our Town.” – Patrice O’Neill, California
