Co-Chairs Brenda Green and Tosha McKnight

The Social Action Committee of the Shawnee County Kansas Democratic Committee exists to improve voter participation in the political process by creating opportunities for social engagement through social platforms and community activities. Our primary goal is to get more Democrats elected to office through constituent engagement activities.




The Events Committee of the Shawnee County Democratic Committee has three goals: 1) To make known the presence of the Shawnee County Democrats in our community; 2) To increase people’s involvement by volunteering, getting out the vote (GOTV), supporting candidates as well as financial contributions to the county party; 3) To inform our community and voters on issues that directly affect their lives here in Kansas. Ongoing events and activities include the Bean Feed, summer picnic, First Friday Art Walk, area parades, Mother Earth News Fair, March for Science, and Holiday Food Drive.

Election Day outside of big cities is different. For one thing, there are so few people in my town that each individual vote really does matter, and several local races have been decided by as many votes as you can count on one hand. — Susan Orlean
