Political Awareness and Involvement Chair
This committee provides pertinent legislative updates to chapter members and community groups, as well as information on public policy and civil rights activities. It keeps abreast of the annual National Social Action Commission Plan and identifies projects for chapter implementation. Our activities include voter registration, promoting Census completion, and education regarding pending legislation. The Chapter participates in Delta Days at the Kansas State Capitol annually.
Registered and Ready House Party: Promoted as a party with a purpose, the Leavenworth Alumnae Chapter hosted a Registered & Ready House Party on October 6, 2020 to encourage viewers to help their friends and family register to vote and understand the power of making their voices heard in the 2020 General Election. Each person that viewed the event was encouraged to help their friends and family get registered to vote for the upcoming 2020 General Election. Topics discussed included voter registration status and verification, the safety of mail-in and absentee voting, checking in on college students voting for the first time and via absentee ballot, and creating a voting day plan. Also discussed was the importance of being counted in the 2020 Census for resources and representation. More than 200 viewers tuned into the event and were challenged to each text 10 people, giving the chapter the ability to potentially reach over 2,000 prospective eligible voters. Viewers were treated to a variety of music crossing multiple generations as Johnny The DJ Quest of Your KC DJ spun records during the two-hour YouTube live event.
