How we as a society collect and spend our common resources, and whether and how we care for the less fortunate, are issues with profound moral significance. Citizen advocacy itself is an act of faith - a belief that the actions we take can change the world for the better.
KIFA is continuing its series of "Faith and Public Policy" Forums throughout the 2019 legislative session. These nonpartisan panels are intended to give good, solid, factual information on issues of vital importance to Kansans of faith and conscience.
The panel will include advocates and activists who work daily on the vital issues facing voters in Kansas: the prospect of Medicaid expansion; Kansas' budget and taxes; the state of anti-poverty programs both here and nationally,; voter participation and criminal justice reform; and more. The panel will be moderated by Rabbi Moti Rieber of KIFA, who will also give remarks about the moral implications of public policy. Each presenter will speak for 10-15 minutes, and there will be time for questions.
