Twenty-five years ago, thousands of people came to the Summer of Mercy abortion protests in Wichita. This week, Operation Save America is back in the city to demonstrate, pray, and to stop abortions.

An alternative to a protest in support of Black Lives Matter took place at McAdams Park in Wichita on Sunday: a cookout uniting hundreds in the Wichita community with law enforcement officers. It was an effort to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay thought of the idea and local activist AJ Bohannon agreed to co-host. KMUW’s Carla Eckels was there at the First Steps Community Cookout and caught up with some of the folks attending.
