Prairie Village will be host to an intimate house concert featuring Kansas City-born Kelley Hunt on September 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is part of a 50-state project called “Voices United” organized by Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Locally, MainStream Coalition is sponsoring the Kansas event in Prairie Village.
The $35 donation to attend will be split between the MainStream Education Foundation and the national sponsoring group. The location, in a private home, will be sent to attendees after they have registered. The series of live events and house concerts will take place in all 50 states between September 28 and October 1.
Americans United is asking Americans to “take a seat and make a stand” for separation of church and state as the national elections grow closer.
AU is a 65-year-old organization that defends “the Constitution’s guarantee that America will remain a democracy and not a theocracy.” MainStream Coalition and the MainStream Education Foundation were founded in Johnson County in 1993 as the “Moderate Alliance of Informed Neighbors.” MainStream is a nonpartisan organization whose mission is to promote the separation of church and state with an emphasis on public education and religious freedom.
More than 150 artists across the country are donating their time for the house concerts and live events.
Kelley Hunt is an R&B singer, composer and musician well known to Kansas City area audiences. Space is limited at the event and reservations can be made at www.mainstreamcoalition.org.
