Kansas Leaders Ask Legislators to Keep Kansas Open

The Mainstream Coalition has come together with a wide collection of economic, faith, education, and advocacy leaders to urge Kansas lawmakers to reject legislation that would harm children and families, make elections more difficult, and cast Kansas in a poor light for economic investment.

We, undersigned, are writing to strongly support the Governor’s veto of various troublesome divisive bills including those that encourage bullying and discrimination against transgender youth (SB 55) and election bills that limit citizen participation in open and fair elections, primarily impacting Black and Latino, elderly, disabled, LGBTQ Kansans, and rural voters (HB 2183, HB 2332).

The future of Kansas and the families that call it home, deserve better...
