Welcome from the Kansas African American Affairs Commission
KAAAC Commissioners and staff have worked to create an informative, accessible, and resourceful website for your use. Through these pages you will be able to keep up with the Commission and download previous documents and information on past events. 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 the State of Kansas. Through community outreach and public policy we create strategies in the areas of Health, Education, Social Services, Employment and Business Development. We look forward to building collaborative relationships and establishing partnerships with those currently working in each of the areas of equity noted previously.
Additionally, we support the development of civic leaders and provide advocacy related resources and support for your use. If you would like to join our efforts, please contact our office, sign up for our Listserv, and/or follow us on Facebook. We are committed to being a catalyst of positive change, and it is our hope that the State of Kansas is a great place for African Americans to reside and prosper.
The KAAAC members devise strategies to address the public policy concerns of the African American community through its partnerships with the state agencies, corporations and foundations. The Commission will serve as a conduit for programs, grants, research, and policy advice for state and local organizations in addressing concerns that are unique to the African American Community in the state of Kansas.
