EDUCATION, AWARENESS AND SUPPORT
Delivering Results for Kansas Patients and Our Community
We are a group of concerned Kansas citizens. Many are patients with various illnesses, some are the families of patients, and others are just citizens moved by compassion to act on behalf of those who suffer.
Our educational arm, Bleeding Kansas , Inc. is a 501(c)3, and was founded by three mothers in 2014.
They called themselves "The Stroller Brigade." You could see them up at the capitol, pushing their children in their strollers, as they fought to educate lawmakers with research, and patient's stories of suffering. We originally organized to fight for science to win over stigma in regards to our patient's need for safe access to medical cannabis.
Information on Bleeding Kansas Advocates, and the Kansas Safe Access Act can be found at bksadvocates.org. .
We have organized to provide education, awareness and support to Kansas patients. We also seek to provide education to the Kansas public, and lawmakers, about the many issues faced by Kansas patients.
We chose the name Bleeding Kansas to hearken to the time when Kansas led the country in fighting for freedom for every individual, and for the preservation of those unalienable rights held sacred by every American. We hope that Kansas may remember, and return, to her most honorable title of 'The Free State.'
