I called Executive Director, Joyce Grover of the KCSDV just a couple of days ago to inform her of The Kindness Bicycle/Bus Tour coming to Topeka, in 2 days time, she put together the warmest of welcomes. Today I walked into a room full of her entire staff of nearly 30, less Pat Clark, the receptionist, who answers all of the important calls. The staff had provide for this breakfast meeting with homemade dishes, pastries and fruit.
After my talk, as a group and individually, we shared information of the important work that this coalition accomplishes. This state agency works to educate the public on issues of domestic violence, builds coalition among service providers and networking to ensure comprehensive service to the public, works on prevention measures across the state, helps to promote positive policy change on the state and national levels, diligently works to obtain funding for programs and so much more. It was am honor to meet so many dedicated individuals all in one room. Thank you to all.
During one of the breaks from my short ride of 20 miles today, I met Tracy from the Governor’s office, she was so excited and complimentary for The Kindness Bicycle/Bus Tour. I think the Governor will hear about us on Monday morning.
