Kansas Interfaith Action: Our Mission

Kansas Interfaith Action is a statewide, multi-faith issue-advocacy organization that “puts faith into action” by educating, engaging and advocating on behalf of people of faith and the public regarding critical social, economic, and climate justice issues.
KIFA (pronounced "KEE-fa") members are shaped by the values of our diverse faiths, which connect us to an age-old concern for justice, peace, and human dignity. Rooted in faith, we join hands across difference to work for moral public policy in Kansas.

    Urge Sen. Moran to vote NO! on Trumpcare

    In the next few days, the Senate is expected to vote on a dangerous bill that would strip health care away from hard-working Kansans and families across the country -- all for the sake of giving tax breaks to the wealthy.

    If this becomes law, millions of Americans will lose critical health care coverage, and the impact on people’s lives would be catastrophic.

    Sen. Moran claims to be undecided on the bill. So we need you to call his office and get his phone ringing off the hook. If you get the voicemail, leave a message. We need to do everything in our power to make sure he votes NO.

    Here are his offices. Call him today or whenever your can. The future of Kansas depends on it.

    2017 Legislative Session Wrap-up

    The mood in this year's legislative session was like a reverse bell curve: very high expectations early, a lot of frustration in the middle, and then a great sense of accomplishment at the end.

    KIFA 2017 Annual Dinner

    KIFA_Annual_Dinner_2017.jpgOur 2017 banquet took place on Tuesday, May 23, at Temple Beth Sholom in Topeka. More than 100 people attended, making it our best annual event yet.

    Our keynote speaker was Sister Simone Campbell, founder and executive director of NETWORK LOBBY and the original "Nun on the Bus." Prior to the dinner we held a meet-and-greet with sponsors, award winners, board members and Sr. Simone.

    It was a delight and honor to be able to ask Sr. Simone about how she puts her faith into action and receive her advice on how we can continue with our work in Kansas. She clearly has a keen interest in our state.

    Kansas People's Agenda Tells the Legislature: Time's Up! Fix the Problems!

    The Kansas People’s Agenda (of which KIFA is a constituent part) held a press conference on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 12:00 noon at the Kansas State Capitol in Room 118-N to tell lawmakers “Time’s Up! Fix the Problems!”

    Even after over 100 days of the 2017 legislative session, the four most urgent issues facing our state remain to be addressed:

    • Revenue policy that meets budget needs without endlessly increasing debt and stealing from retirement plans and highways funds, and that restores fiscal responsibility through equitable taxation,
    • A school funding formula that will fund our schools adequately and equitably and that will pass constitutional scrutiny,
    • Medicaid expansion that will support the health needs of the nearly 150,000 low-income people currently uninsured, and will assure access to health care in rural areas without bankrupting rural communities, and
    • Uphold the exemption from concealed carry for public college and university campuses, and state hospitals and community mental health centers, avoiding burdensome and unnecessary costs as well increased risks which would come otherwise.
