United

Liberty. Freedom. Independence. We take pride in these words, as Americans. We celebrate them on the fourth day of July, reminding ourselves that we once overthrew a tyrant who sought to deny us those words. In 1776, we fought together for the right to be independent.

Get Out the Voters

It is time. We need you to help us get out the vote in the 2019 elections. We're not asking you to attend a phone bank, or to sign up to walk in the heat, knocking on the doors of strangers. No, we just want you to call your friends, your family, or your co-workers. People you already know. We want you to talk to them about how important it is for them to vote.

Education Still Needs You

The Kansas Supreme Court ruled on Friday that Kansas is finally in compliance with their order to provide Constitutionally-mandated funding for public education. For the first time in at least a decade, Kansas is spending what the people expect, and can provide adequate and equitable public education for ALL Kansas children. But Kansas kids still need you.

Stop the Next Kris Kobach

Who are we talking about? Who is the next Kris Kobach? To tell you the truth, we don't know, but if you'd known what his future held twenty years ago, when Kris Kobach won his first elected position, do you think you would have voted, worked, and donated to his opponent?

82% turnout!

Let’s give some context for that number, 82% turnout. In the last three Presidential elections, less than 60% of voters cast a ballot. Even fewer people vote in non-Presidential years, however the 2018 midterms recorded the highest voter turnout of any midterm election since 1966! How many turned out? 47%. That's right. Not even half of registered Americans voted in the most hotly contested midterms in fifty years.

Start Defending Kansas Women Now

Georgia. Alabama. Missouri. Pro-Life extremists are passing abortion laws even their own supporters think go too far. Their intent? Get the issue before the newly conservative US Supreme Court, in an attempt to revoke the right to legal, safe abortions. The result? Hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of women in those states are having their lives thrown into turmoil. Kansas is next.

Is it 2020 yet? No.

In the news section, we have been running stories under the heading, "Is it 2020 yet?" regarding the ambitions of legislators and politicians for the 2020 US Congressional races. With the 2019 Kansas Legislative Session behind us (mostly, Sine Die, the final day, is still ahead on May 29), isn't 2020 what is next? Despite what the news, Facebook, or the donation emails flooding in would say, no, 2020 is not next. In Kansas, we vote every year, in August and November. In just two and-one-half months, on August 6, 2019, Kansans will go to the polls for a Primary Election.
