The Women for Kansas convention started Friday night, and about 500 women in yellow and green t-shirts marched to the Taking Back Kansas rally.
The rally was held at A. Price Woodard Park and hosted speakers, singers and food. The Women for Kansas convention is held this weekend at the Drury Plaza Hotel, across the street from the park.
The W4K organization aims to energize voters and to support candidates who want a fair, progressive tax system, adequate education funding, a court system without political influence, voting rights for all citizens and equal access for immigrant families.
