KIFA and CAIR-Kansas are once again co-sponsoring Muslim Advocacy Day. All of us - Muslims, Christians, Jews, Unitarians, agnostics, and others - will visit the state capitol to let our legislators and the people of Kansas know how important our Muslim neighbors are to the well-being of our communities our refusal to see them victimized or singled-out, legally or politically.
Last year we had over 200 people of all faiths to support our Muslim neighbors and advocate for policies that support and uphold them and our shared agenda of peace and social justice. We hope for a similar or even larger turnout this year!
10AM - Interfaith Rally / Press Event - 2nd Floor Rotunda
11AM - House of Representatives: Invocation by a Muslim leader; recognition of the group
11:30 - 2 - Meet with Legislators
2:30 - State Senate: Invocation by a Muslim leader; recognition of the group
It's important that we have a good turn out for this event to be successful so please plan to join us!
You're invited to a clergy breakfast!
If you seek a better way forward for Kansas and this country, we hope you will consider joining us for a meeting to hear about the good work of Rabbi Moti Rieber and Kansas Interfaith Action.
Kansas Interfaith Action (KIFA) is a statewide, multi-faith issue advocacy organization that puts faith into action by educating, organizing, and advocating on a variety of social, economic and climate justice issues. Made up of people of faith and conscience from all traditions (and none) from all over Kansas, KIFA's mission is to bring the moral voice to public policy in Kansas.
Just this year, KIFA has testified and organized around KanCare expansion, guns on campus, fair budgeting and taxation, voter suppression and more. For more information about KIFA please visit KansasInterfaithAction.org.
Rabbi Moti Rieber, executive director of KIFA, will join us to talk about the vision and mission of the organization and what is happening in our state legislature and beyond. There will be plenty of time for questions, and to discuss priorities and visioning for the future.
Help us strengthen interfaith social justice in Kansas! Please join us for breakfast on Thursday, March 8 at 9 am.
Rev. Jennifer Thomas
