We invite you to get involved with us in making Shawnee County a more tolerant, democratic place to live. As a group, we have identified 5 issues that are of primary concern to us:
Education is a key cog in the wheel of life improvement for all Kansans. We support debt-free higher education for all Kansas students, and relief from crushing student debt burdens.
We believe health care is a right, not a privilege, and our health care system should put people before profits. We support universal health care, and the reduction of prescription drug costs.
We believe all Kansans deserve economic prosperity. We want to raise workers’ wages, help employees share in record corporate profits, and protect and expand social security
We support equality for all. We will continue to stand with LGBTQ people around the world to fight efforts by any nation, state, or community to infringe on LGBTQ rights.
We are not climate change deniers. We believe it is urgent for our generation to pass legislation that makes strides toward protecting our environment for future generations.
In the end, that’s what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope? — Barack Obama
