Kansas Civic Engagement Table
The Kansas Civic Engagement Table (e.g. the “Table”) is a statewide nonprofit, nonpartisan backbone organization whose goal is to build a truly representative government in Kansas by empowering the Rising Kansas Electorate (RKE)* from traditionally underserved, underrepresented communities. The Table seeks to strengthen the collective impact of and collaboration between the nonprofit 501c3 community and advocacy organizations who maintain a shared, inclusive vision.
The Table’s goal is to build an electorate representative of all Kansans, where everyone is able to participate in the democratic process and members of the RKE have their voices heard in the policymaking decisions that affect their lives.
* We see the “Rising Kansas Electorate” as: African Americans, Latinx, Native Americans, new citizens, low-income families, unmarried women, LGBTQ+ Kansans, disabled Kansans, young voters (18-34) and other forward-thinking citizens.
