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.
And, yet, politicians in Topeka continue to attack our courts at an alarming rate. That's why we are working to keep politicians out of the courtroom and ensure fair and impartial courts that protect the constitutional rights of every Kansan.
We must preserve the system for selecting judges based on their qualifications, character, and ability.
And we must keep on the bench judges and justices selected that way.
It’s time to stop these politicians. It’s time to stand up for your rights, defend the Constitution and protect our courts.
Make your voice heard. Let’s keep our courts fair and impartial.
