Organization Overview

Mainstream is dedicated to creating a more representative and responsive government by empowering informed participation and meaningful action in the political process. For over 25 years we have worked to educate, engage, and activate voters to stand against political extremism and guard against the encroachment of religious doctrine in the public space. After a decade of strong growth, we are poised to radically impact the political landscape of Kansas with a committed network of supporters, a cutting edge relational voter engagement program, statewide digital tools and a clear voice advocating for all Kansans.

Mainstream is made up 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: 

  • Mainstream Coalition is a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan political advocacy organization. We work with our members and partners in Topeka and communities across the state to influence legislation that results in  equitable representation and sustainable public policy for all Kansans. 
  • The Voter Network is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan nonprofit organization. Through partnerships with organizations and individuals, we inform, engage and connect Kansans through nonpartisan voter education and effective voter turnout efforts. 
  • MainPAC is a nonpartisan political action committee. We directly support campaigns and candidates who align with the values and priorities of Mainstream Coalition.

The Marketing & Communications Coordinator will be responsible for managing social media, maintaining website content, developing and executing a marketing calendar, and creating print and digital content across the Mainstream organizations.

This is an exciting opportunity to effect real change in Kansas politics. The Marketing & Communications Coordinator will join a small but passionate team working to increase civic engagement, educate voters, and advocate for equitable representation in government.
