Public Policy Forum

Join us on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 and learn more about how we can work together to address the childcare crisis in Kansas that the pandemic has highlighted. UCS shared earlier this year a report from The Family Conservancy that more than 130 childcare programs in the Kansas City metro area have permanently closed their doors since the pandemic, totaling a loss of 3,201 childcare spaces, 1,084 of which were in Johnson County. Learn from Melissa Rooker, Executive Director of the Kansas Children’s Cabinet & Trust Fund, and John Wilson, President of Kansas Action for Children, about ways we can work together to address this issue.

This year’s panel of legislators include Senator Rob Olson, Senator Ethan Corson, and Representative Chris Croft. Hear their thoughts about what will be the priorities for the 2022 legislative session. Representative Croft serves as the chair of the Housing Committee on Redistricting which will be a dominant issue for the upcoming session.
