Join us in Topeka for a Day at the Capitol!

Topeka2

Please join us in Topeka on

January 14th, 15th & 16th from 10am-2pm

We know how difficult it can be to take a day and make a trip to Topeka – especially for our friends out west – but nothing speaks to legislators like Kansans walking around the Capitol, and stopping by their offices with concerns.
We are asking you to take just one day out of your schedule to make a difference!

We will begin by meeting at the information booth on the ground floor of the Capitol.  Visit these links for more on directions and parking, and a map of the floors.

 ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Capitol Guide

Download and print our “Guide” to make contacting legislators and finding offices easier.

Letter to the Governor

Download, print, sign and deliver (or mail) a letter to Governor Brownback asking for Kansas to withdraw from Common Core.  Please remember to include your district number.

*Please remember to be courteous and respectful in all forms of communication – and stick with the facts!  If you would like more information and resources, this is a good place to start.

If you can’t make it to the Capitol next week…

We still encourage you to pick a day and visit the Capitol in person, and the sooner the better!  You can use our guide to easily find the contact information for Leadership, the House Education Committee, and the Senate Education Committee.  And don’t forget to visit with the legislators from your own district – maybe even call ahead to schedule a few minutes of their time.

Consider taking time to write letters directly to legislators.  Send with a friend heading to the Capitol or email us by Sunday, January 12 and we will print and deliver your letter(s) in person.

Print, sign and mail a copy of the Letter to the Governor.
*Please remember to include your district number.

The Kansas Legislature returns to Topeka for the start of the next session on Monday, January 13th –
and we need every Kansan opposed to Common Core to be there too!
We know how difficult it can be to take a day and make a trip to Topeka – especially for our friends out west – but nothing speaks to legislators, like having concerned Kansans walking around the Capitol, and stopping by offices.
We are asking you to take just one day out of your schedule to make a difference.
If you can two or three days – even better!
Please help us make our voices heard!
Meet us at the Capitol on one of these days:

January 14, 15 or 16

January 21, 22 or 23

We will also be sending out information with additional details, including directions and a simple guide to make stopping by to visit with your legislators, leadership, and education committee members as easy as possible. Look at your calendar, and then let us know when we can expect to see you at the Capitol.
Are you a group leader, active in an organization, or do you have a large contact list of friends and family?
If so, please help us spread the word and keep a sign-up list, of names, emails and dates that you can share with us going forward for planning purposes.  We have also created our Stop Common Core petition in a document format for obtaining multiple signatures.  You can also sign and share our petition online:

See YOU in Topeka!
