The Big Tent Coalition and Kansans for Quality Communities invites you to come and to share your ideas and stories!
As our state moves into an uncertain future questions we need to ask for example include:
#1. How can we strengthen, and improve upon, our community’s quality resources for Kansans with disabilities of all ages?
This includes all people with disabilities. Not limited to any disability such as, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health challenges, the frail elderly, traumatic brain injuries and children with severe emotional disturbances.
#2. How can we strengthen, and improve upon, our community’s investment in quality public education?
#3. How can we best protect, and improve upon, our community’s investment in both a quality public workforce and quality infrastructure?
