Welcome to the Kansas Free Press!
So, what is the Kansas Free Press? KFP is a brand new state-wide online newspaper, in blog format, written exclusively by citizen journalists. Our Kansan writers will write about people, politics, and policies that effect Kansans, the future of Kansas and our way of life.
Why citizen writers? Writing about the local politics and people of Kansas, our citizen journalists are chiefly moved to jump into a public conversation about the future of Kansas. Citizen writers desire to participate directly in democracy - by gathering information about what happens in school board meetings, community events, county commission meetings or in the state legislature.
Our writers want to examine what the people of Kansas value most and how our community and governments responds to those values. They want to be more informed about their governments - and they want to ensure other citizens have good information, too.
