The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings will begin after Labor Day. In response, activists and concerned citizens gathered around the country on August 26th for a national day of action to tell our Senators: Kavanaugh is WRONG for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh has said that a sitting President should not be prosecuted — not even investigated — which means the President doesn't have to answer questions about possible crimes. Kavanaugh's also hinted that a sitting President shouldn't be sued either, but it doesn't stop there; he still refuses to release documents regarding his voting records. His extreme positions threaten equal rights for all citizens, our environment and our economy.
There’s no doubt: Kavanaugh would rule to attack voting rights and LGBTQ rights, slash environmental protections, gut reproductive rights, and further damage workers’ and immigrant rights. If Senators vote to confirm Kavanaugh, they would cement into place the worst and most dangerous of Donald Trump’s policies and a legacy that will live on for decades after he's gone. Kavanaugh on the court means an end to Roe v Wade; any hope of getting money out of politics; and a Supreme Court which does not back the investigation into Trump's illegal and traitorous activities. Trump's lawyer just pled guilty to two counts of violation of campaign finance laws and said Trump directed him to pay off Stormy Daniels and his other mistress. Furthermore, is it right that a president under investigation gets to pick his own judges? A resounding NO!
🗣 We can NOT have a Supreme Court Justice who thinks the president is above the law. ⚖️

Thank you to everyone who turned out to support the Voter Registration Project and Let America Vote in a kick-off in KCK for the last week of voter registration before the July 17th deadline to register to vote in the August 7th Primary Election!
We were happy to have amazing guest speakers including Brian McClendon and Jason Kander, of Let America Vote as well as many other strong voter registration advocates in attendance. If you were unable to make it you can watch Jason Kander's speech here and read Wyandotte Daily's write-up here.
With less than a week out we would like as many people who haven't registered to do so! If you, your friends, or family have any questions about how to register or if you are currently registered please visit either KSVotes (Kansas) or MOVotes (Missouri).

The Kansas Legislature recently passed a $500 million K-12 school finance plan. Because of an $80 million mistake in the recently passed funding bill, the Shawnee Mission School District stands to LOSE $2,056,320. This is NOT okay.
This past Tuesday evening, parents, community members, and elected officials gathered to discuss how we got here and what happens next for Kansas K-12 schools. The discussion took place immediately following Loud Light's screening of "The Spooky Scary School Funding Crisis Special."

"Congress has failed to protect our immigrant youth once again after voting for a spending bill that did not include a #DreamActNow. Every day that passes by, more and more undocumented youth lose protection from deportation. We will not be used as a bargaining chip to lock another person into the camps, rip a family apart or undermine the very idea of family immigration. Do not let Trump dehumanize the people we love."
Friends & families joined organizers and allies at First Friday in the Crossroads district in downtown Kansas City to demand that action be taken and Congress protect young Americans and their families from deportation.

*Dark Money, *Disappearing Text Apps, *No Priorities for Jefferson City Ethics Reform, *Bully Tactics with the State Legislature, and *Underhanded Tactics with the State Board of Education, and the Water Board — Governor Eric Greitens would not even pass his own Ethics Test!
In solidarity with our friends in Joplin and Springfield, a coalition of groups including Heartland Alliance for Progress, Our Revolution KC, and Indivisible KC greeted Governor Greitens' budget tour with a demand that he either start living up to the campaign promise that he would bring ethics to Jefferson City, or resign!
We gathered on the sidewalk outside of U.S. Farathane and the Governor gave a speech about his budget plan inside the building at 4:30. PLEASE NOTE that we were only made aware of the Governor's visit on January 30th, so this was a spur-of-the-moment grassroots action. There were no speakers and limited organizers.
