Sign up for our new Letter to the Editor program here!     This September 11th will mark 20 years since the tragedy that shook our nation to its core and taking the lives of so many of our fellow countrymen and women. The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and onboard United Flight 93 cut short the lives of 2,977 innocent people. These attacks tore a hole in the heart of our country and the pain of this tragedy still remains. Today, we honor our friends, family members, and first responders who lost their lives on one of the darkest days in our nation's history. Let us never forget the true heroism demonstrated by first responders, emergency personnel, and ordinary citizens on 9/11. May their legacy live on forever.   KDP PRESENTS: DIGITAL DEMOFEST 2021 The KDP will be hosting a virtual Demofest Reception online next Saturday, September 18th at 12 p.m. Due to the uptick of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in Kansas, the KDP, in conjunction with the KDP Executive Committee, have decided to pivot this year's event to an online reception. We've secured an exciting lineup of featured speakers and you won't want to miss this year's programming that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home! The Keynote Speaker for Demofest will be former Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) and we'll also be hearing remarks from SGOTUS Doug Emhoff, US Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), with virtual appearances by our very own US Representative Sharice Davids, Governor Laura Kelly and Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple! This is an event you won't want to miss. Get your tickets for Demofest here.     TEXAS IMPLEMENTS THE WORST ANTI-ABORTION LAWS IN THE NATION, KANSAS FACES SIMILAR FUTURE  This week, Texas implemented SB8, the most dangerous and draconian ban on our right to abortion in healthcare history. The ban places a bounty on the heads of anyone who receives an abortion after six weeks and has no exceptions for rape or incest -- adding to the horror of the bill that will harm millions. This nightmare law is chillingly similar to the Value Them Both amendment here in Kansas, which was passed by Kansas Republicans and will be on the Primary ballot in August 2022. It is more important now than ever, with reproductive rights on the line in Kansas, that we show up to the ballot boxes and make our voices heard so that no person will have to forfeit the right to their autonomy in our great state.

Sign up for our new Letter to the Editor program here!     On Labor Day, we celebrate and pay tribute to the contributions of American workers. For decades, pioneers across the country have organized to stand up for the dignity of working people. Democrats are continuing that fight today, having passed the American Rescue Plan and working to pass the American Jobs Plan to bridge back our economic recovery and create thousands of good, secure jobs for hard working Americans. This year, we stand proudly with laborers and uphold our commitment to fair wages and benefits, and safe, healthy workspaces free from discrimination for all.   KDP PRESENTS: DIGITAL DEMOFEST 2021 The KDP will be hosting a virtual Demofest Reception online on September 18 at 12 p.m. Due to the uptick of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in Kansas, the KDP, in conjunction with the KDP Executive Committee, have decided to pivot this year's event to an online reception.

Although it was an important victory, we also recognize LGBTQ+ women and women of color had to continue to fight for this right and to be considered equal in the eyes of the law. Today we celebrate the women who for decades marched, picketed and went to jail for an equal say in our nation's elections. Without them, we would not have the group of women that currently serve in our federal, state and local governments. Let's honor their legacy by fighting for a future where the right to vote is protected and all can participate fully in our democracy. Happy Women's Equality Day!     KDP PRESENTS: DIGITAL DEMOFEST 2021 The KDP will be hosting a virtual Demofest Reception online on September 18 at 12 p.m. Due to the uptick of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in Kansas, the KDP, in conjunction with the KDP Executive Committee, have decided to pivot this year's event to an online reception.

The committee crammed all 14 of its town halls into the span of just one week, and conducted the majority of them during the middle of the workday. To make the matter worse — and perhaps anticipating the backlash they’d eventually receive about their sham process — the town halls were announced by Republicans in the waning hours of the Friday evening before the meetings would start.
