A more progressive Kansas
A Kansas organization is looking to follow in Georgia's footsteps and bring a more progressive presence to the state's legislature.
Prairie Roots is a new grassroots organization in Kansas that has taken on the goal of flipping the Kansas legislature to a progressive majority by 2026. Inspired by the strategies employed by Georgia's progressive organizations, Prairie Roots hopes to get non-voters to the polls through "deep canvassing." KCUR's Brian Ellison spoke with executive director Peyton Browning on Up To Date.
