Kansas in 2012? A Prediction of More Legal Battles, Higher Tax Bills, and Declining Access to Services
I work for Kansas NOW. Our mission encompasses a broad expanse of issues linked to equality and justice. In Kansas, equality of opportunity and social supports are currently being eliminated through a multitude of administrative and legislative maneuverings and measures via the leadership of Governor Brownback. The vast array and sheer volume of the changes that are being attempted and implemented in this state could make it difficult to prioritize where time, energy and resources of a small nonprofit should be spent.
However, as my organization looks ahead to 2012, we don’t need a crystal ball to tell us where a great deal of our time, energy and resources will be spent. My organization stands in support of women’s reproductive rights, which means much of our prioritizing will be done for us. The 2012 Kansas Legislature will be introducing another slew of abortion restrictions.
