Rosilyn Temple founded the Kansas City chapter of Mothers In Charge to help grieving families of homicide victims after her own son’s homicide in 2011. Temple was recently named the 2015 Citizen of the Year by the Kansas City Star, and awarded the FBI Kansas City division’s Director’s Community Leadership Award. Jon Brick, a local Kansas City Filmmaker is currently creating a documentary about Temple’s fight against gun violence and homicide in Kansas City, Mo.
Two Kansas City artists Ada Koch, and Glenn North – both ArtsKC Inspiration Grant Panelists – collaborated on the show Love, Loss and Violence, which responds to Mothers In Charge. The show is currently up at The Leedy Voulkos, and a percentage of the proceeds benefit Mothers in Charge.
