For These Legislators

A week from today, on May 21st, the Kansas Legislature will convene for one final day, Sine Die, to conclude their business for the year. One day hardly seems like enough, but that's because today and tomorrow—and likely next week—legislators are getting together for committee hearings to prepare bills for that final day.

In our Mainstream Live interview with Sen. Dinah Sykes this past Tuesday, she mentioned that she'd be in committee today and tomorrow, and that she'd be going to Topeka to do it, because it is hard to object to extreme proposals over a video conference line.

We're holding our Walk the Vote event June 5-13. We have been blessed to have legislators walk to support us in previous years, and many Kansans have joined them to support Mainstream and those legislators. These legislators understand the responsibility they have been given to represent their districts to the best of their abilities, despite extremist opposition, or the coronavirus. We're walking for them.

Why do you walk?

We're holding our (virtual) Walk the Vote this year on Saturday, June 13, with a week of online events leading up to it. The Walk itself will be a virtual event, spread all across Kansas, as people walk in their living rooms, backyards, and neighborhoods.

When we talk about joining Walk the Vote, we're asking you to walk the vote for your cause. Raising money for Mainstream allows us to keep doing the work to support all the issues we hold dear, to work with our partners like the ACLU, PP, the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas, the KNEA and others, to work with legislators and other elected officials to change Kansas for the better.

Stay home to stay safe, vote, and do more than vote: Walk the Vote!
