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.
On July 1, 2017, a law will come into effect allowing conceal-carry firearms on public college and university campuses in Kansas. In keeping with previous legislation, no training or permitting will be required. This policy, known as "campus carry," is a remarkably short-sighted policy, and Kansas Interfaith Action is taking a lead position in organizing opposition to its implementation.
As a faith-based public advocacy organization, Kansas Interfaith Action sees the decisions of government as having an important moral component. Public policy issues often have clear spiritual implications, and it is our role to spell those out and to help the public get good fact- and values-based information on the issues of the day.
In this election season, KIFA will be holding four "Faith and Public Policy" issue forums at locations around the state, where experts in the issues of taxation and budget; assistance to the poor; healing the sick; and the safety of our university environments will make presentations. These will be non-partisan, facts-only events; we won't tell you who to vote for, but we will help you get the information you need to make educated, values-based decisions in the voting booth.
