Since its inception in 2015, the Kansas Black Legislative Day has been a beacon of empowerment and change for Black Kansans. Organized by the Kansas Black Leadership Council (KBLC) and the Kansas African American Affairs Commission (KAAAC), this pivotal event has consistently brought together community members, leaders, and experts to deliberate and decide on the most pressing issues facing Black Kansans.
A Platform for Change
The annual gathering is more than just a meeting; it's a powerful platform where voices are heard, and real change begins. Participants engage in meaningful discussions, listen to insights from leaders and experts, and most importantly, vote on issues to be included in the Legislative Agenda. This agenda is not just a document; it's a roadmap for advocacy and action, shared with local and state representatives and advocates.
Your Voice Matters
The success of the Kansas Black Legislative Day hinges on the active participation and contributions of community members like you. It's your opportunity to let your voice resonate through the halls of decision-making. This year, we are calling on you to participate in the Kansas Black Legislative Agenda survey. Your input is crucial in shaping the priorities for 2024.
A Legacy of Impact
Over the years, the collaboration between KBLC and the African American Legislative Caucus has been instrumental in introducing legislation and influencing policy changes at both the state and local levels. These efforts have directly impacted the lives of Black Kansans, addressing issues from economic development to social justice.
Anonymity and Action
Your responses to the survey are anonymous, ensuring that you can freely express your concerns and ideas. The collective feedback will drive the KBLC and KAAAC's focus on priority issues, ensuring that the agenda truly reflects the needs and aspirations of the Black community in Kansas.
