Tomorrow, 200+ mayors will mingle at Loews Hotel for the 92nd annual United States Conference of Mayors Meeting (USCM).

This is the first time that KC will serve as the event’s backdrop — and our own Mayor Quinton Lucas is at the helm.

“Mayors are on the front lines of solving complex issues every day,” Mayor Lucas said. “And our time spent at USCM meetings provides a critical opportunity [...] to help us serve our communities more effectively.”

During the three-day working conference, the many mayors will brainstorm solutions to problems such as homelessness, gun violence, drugs, and mental health issues.

Mayor Lucas will lead two sessions:

  • Criminal and Social Justice
  • Preventing and Reducing Gun Violence

Leaders from public + private sectors will also attend, making for a total of 1,000+ attendees.
