Join us for the 5th annual
The 2019 Forever the Free State Gala was a thundering success! Democrats from Johnson County and beyond gathered for the fourth annual Gala to celebrate our achievements in building the local Democratic Party and to hear an inspiring message from U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries, Chair of the House Democratic Caucus
This year, we are thrilled announce that U.S. Representative and Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff will be our keynote speaker. However, due to the unforeseen circumstances related to COVID-19 and its spread in our community, this event will be held entirely online. We hope you can join us from the safety of your own home and make our 2020 Gala another great success.
The Gala Planning Committee and Democratic Party Leadership remain committed to guests and donors. In 2017 we promised to use your generous gifts to open a permanent Johnson County Democratic Party Office and to provide funding to our legislative incumbents. Thanks to your generosity we were able to open the office. In 2019 we promised to use your generous gifts to grow the Johnson County Legislative team and thanks to your generosity and our hard working team of volunteers we grew our legislative team from 6 Representatives to a team of 11 Representatives and 2 Senators. Our efforts helped to elect a 3rd District Congresswoman and a Democratic Governor. Your support at this pivotal point in our state and nation's history is vital. Please join us for an evening of inspiration and unity while Johnson County continues to lead the way for Kansas to be Forever The Free State!
Our Keynote Speaker is U.S Representative Adam Schiff.
Former United States Attorney for the District of Kansas, Barry Grissom, joins our beloved celebrity Missy Koonce as our emcees.
