On April 1st, the Kansas Free Press (KFP) celebrated its 6-month anniversary. With gratitude for the Kansans who nobly commit their time and talents to citizen journalism, we are celebrating our recent half-year anniversary by proudly showcasing each of our own KFP writers.
POTWIN, Kan. - In this profile, we are honored to introduce KFP correspondent, Eden Fuson. Active in citizenship and grassroots organizing, she talked with us about what motivates her to make the world a better place. Very simply, she said, "My main goal in life is to be someone my three children will be proud of." Eden explained that she hopes to always spend her life trying to change things that will positively affect their lives.
Eden is the current chairwoman of Butler County Democrats in Kansas and Vice-Chair of the 4th District Democrats of Kansas (KS-04). (That's Eden with two of her children and her mother standing with Barack Obama in the picture!) She is also the treasurer of the Sub-Committee 105 in Kansas, which is focused on creating and strengthening county parties across the state. Eden also volunteers with Potwin Pride, an organization devoted to community involvement, and with the Kansas Veterans and Family Reunion.
In addition to her commitment to all things political, Eden is interested in environmental issues, women's issues, dogs, design, journalism, photography, and many more endeavors.
She also writes at EverydayCitizen.com.
We're so thrilled that this dedicated activist, mother and community organizer has joined our Kansas Free Press community! Eden welcomes you to view her archives.
