We have a bus and ask that you come prepared to provide a small donation. We'll update you with more details later this week.
Upon arrival, we will be delivering this petition: http://action.kansaspeoplesaction.org/page/s/we-support-valdenia-winn, to the members of the committee overseeing the hearing.
There are a number of other happenings from various groups at the statehouse on Friday that you may want to support and can be viewed by clicking this link:
