What We Fight For

Advancing Racial equity

We aim to ensure all are treated fairly through our various committees and partnerships with other social justice groups in Johnson County.

Community engagement

We value our local partnerships and giving back to the community through food basket donations, Christmas gift donations, community picnics, and celebrations for Juneteenth and MLK Jr. Day.

Voter Education

Our Political Action Committee works hard to provide our members with the tools and resources to educate themselves on important voting matters. We also remind voters of important voting dates.
