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.
The KAAAC members work to devise strategies to address public policy concerns of the African American community. The Commission will serve as a conduit for programs, grants, research, and policy advice for state and local organizations while addressing needs for change that are unique to the African American Community in the state of Kansas.
