Kansans, working together, can build a state full of thriving, inclusive, and just communities. Local office holders - including city and county council members, school boards, and mayors have a critical role to play in realizing this vision.
We're working to engage more Kansans and activate them to become advocates within their communities. We're connecting with partners, hosting community meetings throughout Southeast Kansas, and organizing around issues such as food and housing insecurity, transportation, and incarceration.
Southeast and Southwest Kansas communities know their unique strengths and perspectives are integral to what makes Kansas the state it is. Despite this, communities in these regions experience some of the worst statistical indicators for health outcomes in the state, including some of the lowest levels of civic engagement and voter turnout. To address these issues, Kansas Appleseed launched our integrated voter engagement (IVE) campaigns in these regions of the state. Our work began in Southeast Kansas in 2017 and in Southwest Kansas in 2019.
