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.
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.
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.
