Political Action

We aim to further our mission to ensure equitable treatment and opportunities when it comes to voting rights, education, economic empowerment, criminal justice, and health, including environmental justice.

Ensuring all voices are heard

The Political Action Committee (PAC) is expected to increase awareness of registration and voting, fight for local, state and federal legislation designed to improve the educational, political and economic status of minority groups, work to repeal racially discriminatory legislation, and keep the community and Branch informed of all proposed legislation which affects minority groups. All political action shall be non-partisan.

What We Fight For

Ensuring Voter Empowerment

Education on local issues

We will keep you informed of local legislature that could impact underrepresented groups, including African-Americans. We will let you know when and where to show up so your voice can be heard by a local or state representative. 

local collaboration

Fighting for equal voting rights and equitable treatment takes a large community. That is why we value our teamwork and collaboration with organizations such as the League of Women Voters, Stand-Up for Black Lives + Prairie Village, and MORE2.
