Senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum Baker

Hailing from a distinguished Kansas political family, Nancy Landon Kassebaum Baker made her own mark by winning election to the U.S. Senate and serving there for nearly two decades, eventually becoming the first woman to chair a major Senate committee. As both chair of the Labor and Human Resources Committee and a senior member of the Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Kassebaum earned a reputation as a determined and independent voice on issues ranging from Cold War policy to women’s rights.

LWVUS President Chris Carson

Chris Carson was elected as the 19th president of the League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) and chair of the Board of Trustees of the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) in June 2016. Carson has been a member of the California League for over 30 years, serving all of its leadership roles. Carson serves as LWVC’s Campaign Finance Director, monitoring proposed state legislation, working with LWVC’s Board and staff on legislative campaigns and coordinating grassroots advocacy for bills we support.

ARISE! Let Your Light Shine!

ARISE, an acronym for African-Americans Renewing Interest in Spirituals Ensemble — the idiom has resonated throughout Wichita and the state of Kansas for the past 30 years. Fueled by a partnership with the Urban League of Greater Wichita. ARISE is a non-profit educational agency comprised of music and history-minded individuals who seek to keep alive the almost forgotten songs of our forefathers and mothers. These songs and the stories that accompany them chronicle the struggles, conflicts, secret communications, and victories of a people who refused to be extinguished.
