Welcome from the Kansas African American Affairs Commission

The Kansas African American Affairs Commission is committed to being catalyst for positive change in African American communities across the State of Kansas.  KAAAC Commissioners and staff have worked to create an informative, accessible, and resourceful website for your use. We encourage you to stay abreast of upcoming programs and community events, as well as, access resources needed to join with the KAAAC in reducing disparities and inequities for African Americans throughout our state. Through community outreach and public policies we create focus on strategies in the areas of Economic Opportunity and Asset Building; Healthy and Safe Communities; Schools and Educational Opportunities; Criminalization and Social Justice; and Civic Leadership and Advocacy.  We look forward to building collaborative relationships with other state agencies; our Legislative Body; Corporations; foundations, small businesses; Faith Based organizations, and community members which will lead to effective changes in African American communities in Kansas. 

If you would like to join our efforts, we encourage you to contact our office, sign up for our Listserv, and/or follow us on Facebook.  It is our hope that together we can successfully construct solutions that will make the State of Kansas a great place for African Americans to reside and prosper.

Governor Kelly to meet with President on Wednesday

On Wednesday, May 20, Governor Laura Kelly will visit the White House for a meeting with President Trump.   

In addition to discussing the state’s phased reopening and statewide testing strategy, topics of discussion will include protecting America’s food supply chain, supporting Kansas’ farmers, and partnering to ensure the health and safety of food supply workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

"I look forward to the discussion with President Trump on ways we can continue to work with the federal government on our response and recovery efforts," Governor Kelly said. "Our continued emphasis is on protecting Kansans' health and well-being, and helping the state recover from a public health crisis that has exacted a painful financial toll on many. The economic damage will be long lasting, and will require collaboration at every level. I look forward to discussing how the President and I will continue partnering together in our recovery.”
