Do More Than Vote

MainStream is a coalition of informed citizens who believe that moderate voices need to be heard in today's political climate. We stand for mainstream, common sense, responsible and compassionate ideals. We believe that people with different points of view can come together to forge good government that benefits all citizens.

Republican or Democrat, Independent or unaffiliated, MainStream Coalition's members stand for strong public education free of special interests, fiscally responsible policies that balance revenue strategies, and good government free from partisan machinations and religious doctrine.

More than that, our members understand that to take Kansas back from extremists and their ideologies, we need to do more than just vote. We need to get informed, get involved, and speak out.

If you are frustrated by extremist tactics, wish there were a rational voice for common sense in politics, and embrace the notion that good ideas can come from both sides of the partisan divide, then welcome to MainStream.
