Do More Than Vote

The Mainstream Coalition is dedicated to creating a more representative and responsive government by empowering informed participation and meaningful action in the political process. We envision a Kansas political system that represents all of its constituents.

We are comprised of three affiliate organizations with distinct but complementary goals. Together, we aim to realize our shared vision of a Kansas political system that represents all of its constituents. We believe that engagement in all aspects of the political process is critical to our work.

Mainstream Coalition

The Mainstream Coalition is a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan grassroots political organization. We were founded in 1993 with the primary purpose of guarding against ideological extremism and protecting the separation of church and state. While our sphere of advocacy has grown over the years, we remain true to the full work of democracy that has always been integral to our mission: respect for the rights, beliefs, and freedoms of all individuals.

The Voter Network

The Voter Network (formerly The Mainstream Education Foundation) is our 501(c)(3) nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to creating a culture of informed, enthusiastic Kansas voters, especially in communities that have been routinely undermined in the political process. We connect partners and build strategic coalitions that amplify community voices in the belief that “We the People” should mean everyone, not just some of the people.

MainPAC

MainPAC, our nonpartisan political action committee, directly supports candidates and campaigns that align with our legislative priorities. Founded in 2008, we fight to counter extremist ideologies by electing common sense leaders at the local, state, and statewide levels of government.
