Votes have consequences, and those consequences impact all our lives. We talk the talk about getting involved and becoming engaged and paying attention. Well, now we are walking the walk, raising money to make a difference in people's lives in 2018. This is going to a be a fun, noisy, empowering walk, with teams raising money to raise hell in 2018.

Get your team together, fly your flag, and let's change Kansas.

Saturday, June 17, 2017 in Downtown Overland Park
From Santa Fe Commons Park to the InterUrban ArtHouse (1/2 mile)
8 am registration, 9 am walk, ending at the ArtHouse for a political mural art project

Your donation, your pledges, and your participation is in support of the MainStream Coalition, an advocacy organization that supports good government, public schools, healthy communities and sensible fiscal policies in Kansas.

We're raising money to bring more change to Topeka in 2018. Kansas passed tax reform this year, but was blocked by the Governor and the remaining extremist legislators. Kansas passed health care expansion this year, but was blocked by the Governor, and the remaining extremist legislators. Kansas has the votes to pass gun reform, and to protect women's rights. Kansas has the will to fully fund public education. What we don't have, is enough people in Topeka to see this through, from the Governor to some of the seats in the Legislature.

We are out to fix that. Help us raise the money to do it.

Who are we?

The MainStream Coalition is a political advocacy organization that has been around for 24 years. In 2016, we worked the elections and helped shift the balance of power back towards sanity. We hired interns to go door to door getting out the vote and protecting our courts. We held forums, we testified, we marched, we organized. That year, we spent $70,000 supporting Democrats, and another $70,000 supporting moderate Republicans.

We fight for policies, not parties.

Here's what we stand for: good governance, quality public education, healthy communities and sustainable fiscal policy. We fight for transparent government, local control, strong, fully funded schools, teachers' rights, access to health care for everyone, reasonable taxes, fair wages, and the right to lead your life with dignity. To us, it does not matter who you are, or what party you're with, if you agree with those values.

Do more than vote.

That's our slogan, and our mission. We work to educate and engage people so they do more than just vote. Do you know who represents you in Topeka? Find out with our tool: ksleglookup.org. Do you know how they vote? Do you wish you understood the issues better? Do you want to run for office? Do you want to make calls, or walk door to door. Do you want to meet your legislators? Do you want to be heard? Be informed? Get involved? Well, that's what we do.
