HATE, -ISMS, ANTIS-
WHY IT MATTERS
Since the election of 2016, hate, racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance and general intolerance has become more evident and, in some circles, accepted.
Of course, it is NOT acceptable.
We intend to fight to ensure that every individual has the same rights and freedoms as a white, straight, educated, American-born Christian male.
We will continue to fight to ensure that everyone can live their best life without fear of retribution, physical attacks, and prejudice.

MO Sentator Josh Hawley on “Cosmopolitans”
(not the Carrie Bradshaw kind, the white supremacist dog whistle kind)
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley made comments this week at the National Conservatism Conference: “... The old political platforms have grown stale. And the old political truisms now ring hollow. The American people are demanding something different, and something better. It’s time we ended the cosmopolitan experiment and recovered the promise of the republic.”
What you can do:
Contact Josh Hawley’s office to ask him to apologize for his remarks, and help Kansas elect a new Senator in 2020 who will counteract the hate.
Build a Wall … Around Kobach
Kris Kobach is back, now a Kansas senatorial candidate, and still promoting his racist anti-immigration “policies.” He’ told supporters his involvement with “We Build the Wall,” formed in late 2018 from the Go Fund Me account, was “one of the most rewarding things I have done in my career.” Read more.
What you can do:
Kansans already gave Kobach a decisive defeat for his governor campaign. Time to do it again for his Senate aspirations.
