Near East

The Middle Eastern community is one of the largest communities in Kansas City, seen in community organizations and local cuisine.

The U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa is carefully administered to assist with inclusive prosperity for all. 

Priorities include the promotion of democratic values and foster a free, peaceful, and prosperous Middle East and North Africa. Key topics includes freedom of the press, human rights, religious liberty, and the rule of law. 

Kansas City Ties

There are thousands of individuals from the Near East who call Kansas City home, resulting in strong community ties that can be felt throughout the city.

Restaurants, religious and spiritual communities, cultural associations, and community groups can all be found in Kansas City to keep the Middle Eastern culture alive and strong.
