To promote unity and working together to stop violence, the Mind Yo Own Benzness Car Club and One Love KC hosted a peace ride and family fun day on June 5.
More than 50 cars, motorcycles and ATVs lined up for the peace ride at Grove Park and caravanned to Harris Park at 40th and Wayne Street, where food, vendors and local artists like King D, AutheniKc and D’Vyne Fai’Vr performed and greeted the drivers.
“We want to have good and clean fun together,” said Kenneth Robinett, founder of One Love KC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to pushing mental, spiritual and financial restoration through mentorship in Kansas City’s urban core.
He said the goal of the event was to heal, encourage and inspire the community.
“We want to stop the violence,” Robinett said. “We need everyone in the city from the East, North, South and West to come together and unite together and do some things that we probably haven’t done before and that’s work together.”
