BENEFITING: SUNFLOWER COMMUNITY ACTION INC
The "I Am Kansas" project seeks to help Kansans understand how immigrants positively contribute to our state. We want to create a state that cares more about how we can all move forward together, rather than who we can exclude. "I Am Kansas" is a response to the backward thinking that separates us. It is an effort to create a Kansas community where hard work, dignity, equal opportunity, and family come first.
"I Am Kansas" is an affiliate of Welcoming Kansas, which is a national, grassroots-driven collaborative that works to promote mutual respect and cooperation between foreign-born and U.S.-born Americans. The ultimate goal of Welcoming Kansas is to create a welcoming atmosphere -- community by community -- in which immigrants are more likely to integrate into the social fabric of their adopted hometowns.
Working to create a state that cares more about how we can all move forward together, rather than who we can exclude, requires a great deal of collaboration and community involvement. We are pleased to have the following organizations, churches, and civic groups as community partners.
-Advocates for Immigrant Rights and Reconciliation (AIRR)
-American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
-La Opinion Newspaper
-Peace and Social Justice Center
-Topeka Immigration Coalition
"I Am Kansas" is a non-profit, grassroots organization that relies on support from generous people like you to continue doing the vital work that it does. We depend on donations from people who care about Kansas and want to see it be an inclusive state, rather than an exclusive one.
