SO DO WE.
Over the past few years, our courts have faced an unprecedented series of attacks. Attacks designed to undermine the courts’ credibility, politicize the bench and jeopardize its very ability to operate.
"Kansas is ground zero in the battle over fair courts."
— Susan Liss, executive director, Justice at Stake
The Kansas Supreme Court has been the main focus of the political attacks, but the entire court system has felt the fallout. Regardless of the tactics, the result is always the same: Kansans are being asked to evaluate sitting Justices and Judges as politicians rather than impartial jurists.
Many things in Kansas are broken right now, but our court system isn’t one of them.
A recent poll by Fort Hays State University showed that Kansans have more trust and support for the court system than any other branch of government. And, yet, politicians in Topeka continue to attack our courts at an alarming rate.
It’s time to stop these politicians. It’s time to stand up for your rights, defend the Constitution and protect our courts.
Get active. Make your voice heard. Let’s keep our courts fair and impartial.
