Voter Rights Network of Wyandotte County is a collaboration of community organizations and individuals from Wyandotte and Johnson Counties who come together to advocate for voting rights. Our focus is educating underrepresented, marginalized, and like-minded groups and individuals on issues that impact voters and voter influence. We guide, provide tools, encourage participation in political processes and create mechanisms for action. We partner with organizations that assist our work, including the League of Women Voters of Johnson County, which has been instrumental in providing mapping and insight for the crucial, upcoming redistricting process.
We are non-partisan, as are most of our affiliated organizations, and we strive for opportunities, fairness and a voice in local, regional, statewide and national issues that affect voter rights. These issues can be broad and all-encompassing or narrow in scope, as they touch lives in many ways. For example: discrimination (racial, ethnic, gender and other forms), health and healthcare, hate and other violence (including police), social, economic and criminal injustice, and of course, voter suppression, to name a few key societal concerns that can have bearing on voter welfare.
