Description: "We invite you to participate in the “Dress for Success” clothing drive created by Addair Law summer interns. This drive will take place from July 25th through July 29th 2022, and this clothing will be donated to the K-State Career Closet for students in need of dress clothing. Donating old suits to the K-State Career Closet gives K-State students in need of dress clothes the ability to receive quality clothing at no cost for activities such as interviews and other professional events. We thought this would be a great way to give back and wanted to include the local law community. Below is a list of items that the K-State Career Closet suggests for donations: Men’s and women’s suits Blouses and shirts Men’s and women’s dress pants Belts, ties, accessories Gently worn shoes The Career Center asks that clothes are cleaned before donation and be of good to excellent quality. Additionally, they ask that they have been purchased within the last five years/current with fashion. Feel free to drop any donations at the Addair Law Office at 1600 Poyntz in Manhattan. If you want us to pick up your donations, please email sam@addairlaw.com or call (785) 706-4098 and ask for Sam or Hayden. We would be happy to stop by! If you are interested in making a monetary donation, you can follow the link below to the k-state career center: Donate Directly: https://www.k-state.edu/careercenter/students/attire/careercloset.html As legal community members, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to those who need it most. We are grateful for your support of this drive to provide opportunities for K-State students who may not otherwise have the chance to pursue." Submitted by: Tom Addair Addair Law

A Conversation About the Past and Present of Reproductive Rights and Sexual Justice in Kansas
A Conversation About the Past and Present of Reproductive Rights and Sexual Justice in Kansas

Get more info about this event »

Description: Vote No—And Understand Why You're Doing It *This event is free and open to the public. Attendance at in-person Raven events requires face masks and proof of vaccination against Covid-19.* There is a proposed amendment to the Kansas Constitution that, if passed, would remove the secure right to an abortion for uterus-havers throughout the state. The amendment is one part of a terrifying national movement to reverse the reproductive rights secured by Roe v. Wade—but it’s a reversal that’s been decades in the making. On July 30 at 7 p.m., the Raven will host a conversation between Nicole Perry and Melinda Lavon on the past and present story of reproductive rights and sexual justice (or lack thereof) in Kansas. Nicole Perry is the author of "Policing Sex in the Sunflower State: The Story of the Kansas State Industrial Farm for Women," and Melinda Lavon is a midwife and organizer with Vote NO Kansas. Join us for this discussion and join us in voting NO to protect choice and access to healthcare in Kansas. Learn more about the event and order copies of "Policing Sex in the Sunflower State" here: https://www.ravenbookstore.com/event/conversation-about-past-and-present...
