Why Young People Were Key to Kansas’s Win

In August, Kansas became the first state to vote on abortion protections since the fall of Roe v. Wade. And the opposition was fierce. But with a record-breaking turnout, Kansans voted to keep abortion access protected in the state constitution. This win was made possible thanks to grassroots organizers. Some of the loudest and most inspiring were from youth-centered groups. In this episode, Kate and Jamia talk to two of the organizers who mobilized young voters in Kansas. Local activist organizations from across the state came together to create an abortion campaign that was hopeful, playful, and uniquely Kansas.
