The Topos Partnership
Sept. 17, 2019

Kansas Action for Children (KAC) is taking on the difficult and important work of advancing an explicitly race-forward policy agenda in the state. KAC recognizes that pursuing policies to benefit all Kansans, while also addressing the specific challenges faced by historically marginalized communities – particularly Black and Latinx residents –will pay dividends for the entire state.

The end result of the work reported on here is a strategy that not only builds support for KAC’s race-forward policy agenda, but also provides a much-needed opening for a deeper, more constructive conversation about race with audiences who are currently resistant to this topic.
