Who we are
The KCK Souls to the Polls is a nonpartisan, grassroots initiative designed to ensure ALL voices are included at the “tables of power” by increasing voter turnout. It is an offshoot of the nationwide Souls to the Polls initiative, which was established by a coalition of clergy, their churches and their members to empower marginalized citizens by assisting with voter registration and providing transportation to the polls.
Souls to the Polls is grounded in the American democratic ideals of respect for diversity, insurance of equity and reflective of the essential principles of inclusion. We seek to galvanize traditionally disenfranchised voters, such as Black, Indigenous and People of Color.
Now, more than ever, we need all voices to be heard. Our collective voice directs policy decisions that impact the well-being of our communities in the areas of health care, adequate housing, school funding, care for the aging, aid for the severely impoverished, and equitable, effective policing.
