The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee has developed a reading list for members interested in continued learning and appreciation of DEI issues.
This list was compiled based on critic reviews and other online booklists. Although it contains a variety of diverse groups and topics, it is not intended to convey every experience or issue related to this extensive subject matter.
Tuesday, May 18 at 6 p.m.
Voting rights are under attack nationwide as states pass voter suppression laws. These laws lead to significant burdens for eligible voters trying to exercise their most fundamental constitutional right.
Dating back to the Jim Crow era, a patchwork of state felony disfranchisement laws, which vary in severity from state to state, prevent approximately 5.85 million Americans with felony and, in several states, misdemeanor convictions from voting. Confusion about and misapplication of these laws also de facto disenfranchise countless other Americans.
So what’s going on in Kansas? What regulations are being considered in the 2021 session in Topeka? What are the voting rights of felons? How do they know when they can register? Is it the same across the state?
Plan now to join us at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 18, for an online discussion with representatives from ACLU of Kansas.
This event is free of charge and open to the public. All are welcome.
Every year we have a meeting where our members vote on a proposed budget for the coming 12 months, a slate of board positions, etc. and then we do fun things like honoring our Citizen of the Year. It’s a great way to cap the previous 12 months and form a vision of how the next year will be.
Last year was a bit of a bust. This year we’re on top of our video conferencing game and we’re ready to take full advantage of it! 💪

The public meeting will include:
⭐ DEI Moment of Focus
