Kansas City community groups organize opposition ahead of Royals downtown stadium meeting


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Several community groups are organizing in hopes of halting or ensuring representation in the decision-making process with the Kansas City Royals poised to abandon Kauffman Stadium for a downtown baseball ballpark. Representatives with Stand Up KC — which advocates for low-wage workers, including the push for a $15 minimum living wage — plan to attend a "public community meeting" Tuesday evening organized by the Royals at Plexpod Westport Commons. KC Tenants, which advocates for affordable housing in Kansas City, also plans to have a presence at the event.
