About the Cleaver Program in Religion and Public Life
The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce business community, and other friends established the Cleaver Program in Religion and Public Life to honor Mayor Emanuel Cleaver II for his twenty years of public service to Kansas City, Missouri. The program seeks to build upon Cleaver's efforts to make Kansas City a model of civic life, infused with those religious values shared by many traditions that make for tolerance, inclusiveness, justice, and well being for all citizens. Saint Paul School of Theology, a United Methodist seminary from which Cleaver received his seminary degree in 1972, was selected to host this program.
