On April 13, 2014 two people were killed by a neo-nazi outside the Kansas City Jewish Community Center - 69-year-old Dr. William Corporon, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood.  

He then moved on to Village Shalom, a nearby Jewish retirement center, and killed 53-year-old Terri LaManno.

Since then, Mindy Corporon, who lost her father and her son that day, has channeled her grief into action.  She's launched the organization Seven Days: Make a Ripple, Change the World.

Marking the third anniversary of the shooting, multiple events are scheduled the week of April 18-24 with various Kansas City area faith communities, culminating with an evening walk event at Union Station on Monday April 24th (register for the walk).
