We have been advised that on Monday, August 21st at 7:00 pm, the Rev. Dr. William Barber will speak at the First United Methodist Church in Topeka located at 600 SW Topeka Boulevard. As head of the NAACP of North Carolina, Rev. Barber led the “Moral Mondays” resistance to the right-wing agenda of cutting social services, disenfranchising voters, and the re-segregation of North Carolina. His organization, Repairers of the Breach worked diligently in the 2016 election cycle to unseat the undemocratic forces which had taken over the state’s government.
Now Rev. Barber is stepping down as head of the NAACP to take his work to the national level, targeting states like Kansas which have seen the social safety net removed. This new national initiative aims to end poverty and begin what Barber calls “a national moral revival.” This new Poor People’s Campaign will pick up where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. left off 50 years ago when he turned his focus to uniting poor people across lines of race and geography and pushing their priorities onto the federal agenda.

The Disability Rights Center (DRC) of Kansas is our State's Protection and Advocacy system for people with disabilities. DRC Kansas provides advocacy services and legal representation at no charge in certain disability cases where the civil or legal rights of people with disabilities are violated. We help people with disabilities enforce the provisions of many federal and state disability rights laws.
People with disabilities in Kansas face many barriers to full equality and justice. However, DRC Kansas does not have the resources necessary to tackle all of the issues facing people with disabilities at one time. That is why we create Priorities and Objectives, which provides the structure for how we spend our limited resources.
DRC Kansas must ensure we focus our limited resources on the issues that members of the disability community believe are important. We are asking you to complete this survey because your input will help us make better decisions about our work in the coming fiscal year.
Please complete this survey. Also, please share the link to this survey with your friends, family, and anyone who cares about people with disabilities. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRC2018
