Rep. Sharice Davids was in 2018 one of the first two Native American women to be elected to the U.S. House of Representative.

From coronavirus relief to working to protect Native American women, Davids touts her bipartisan accomplishments.

As of last week, the Cook Political Report lists the 3rd District congressional race in Kansas as "likely Democratic." While that's promising for Sharice Davids' reelection prospects, the coronavirus pandemic is forcing her campaign to get creative about how she connects with voters.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
