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.
