Action Alert: Sub HB 2395 and Sub SB 16

Call your representatives today and urge a NO vote.

These bills take us in the wrong direction and will further endanger the possibility of ending the Gannon litigation. Click here for details.

TAKE ACTION: For the People Act!

Contact Sen. Pat Roberts today and urge support.

The #ForthePeople Act, HR1, is a historic opportunity to expand voting rights, enact ethics reform, & limit big money in politics. It passed the US House of Representatives on March 8, 2019, but a hearing has not been scheduled in the US Senate.  Kansas Senator Pat Roberts is on the Finance Committee and has the power to demand a hearing – it’s up to us to let him know we expect him to! Contact Senator Pat Roberts now to demand a hearing on the For the People Act! 913-451-9343 or 202-224-4774 or use this web page to send him an email.
