fundraising breakfast and annual meeting

Join us for our breakfast fundraiser and annual meeting on Saturday, May 4, as we celebrate the power of everyday activism.

Our featured speaker, Davis Hammet, spends much of his time advocating for Kansas voters. Hammet is the founder of Loud Light, a nonprofit focused on increasing civic engagement of millennials and combating voter suppression. Loud Light covers the Kansas legislature with lively three-minute weekly videos.

Hammet recently won a court victory that requires Johnson County election officials to disclose details on provisional ballots that are not counted. He will share his experiences increasing youth voter engagement and protecting the civil rights of all voters. We know through his advocacy that one person can make a difference.

  • 8:30 a.m. Continental breakfast by Hy-Vee
  • 9 a.m. “Everyday Activism” featuring Loud Light founder Davis Hammet
  • 9:50 a.m. Making Democracy Work Award presentation
