Ending Discrimination Inside The Kansas City Fire Department
Councilman Brandon Ellington says when it comes to the fire department, "you can literally pick any Black firefighter out and they will tell you the issues."
Ellington says even when he was in state government he heard stories from department members regarding policies that overlooked Black and female members. Now that he is sitting on the city council Ellington is looking for actions to stop the unfair treatment.
