Minute With Michelle 06.16.20

Thank you to everyone who read and shared last week’s newsletter. Recent news continues to weigh on my heart, and yet we must keep moving forward, one step at a time.

I refuse to stand by and do nothing. So let’s get to work.

Let’s #StandUpForKS together. If you haven’t signed-up for a volunteer role on my campaign yet, I encourage you to contact Nicole Revenaugh. Now is the time! Along the way, you’ll meet amazing people and gain incredible experience. Just ask Kim Montoya - our volunteer highlight this week! Scroll down to learn more about Kim.

Regardless of whether you volunteer or not, please start making plans now to vote in November. I’ve talked to so many people in the Second Congressional District who, like me, are hungry for change - in our communities, our state, and our nation. Not sure if you’re registered to vote? Check here.

Interview from June 4, 2020

It cannot be emphasized enough: change starts with showing up to vote. That’s exactly what I said in an interview with Bloomberg recently. Listen to the interview here.

Volunteer Highlight: Kim Montoya!
Kim is a justice warrior. She is kind, energetic, competent and dedicated. Kim has been volunteering for social justice causes for many years and we are so grateful for the energy and commitment she brings to the campaign! Thank you for all that you do Kim!
Diversity Reboot 2020: June 15-18, 2020

Upcoming Event: This week I’m discussing the future of the inclusive workplace at Diversity Reboot 2020. As the first Latina Mayor of Topeka, I understand the value of diversity in the workplace on more than just a personal level. I’ve seen the positive economic impact that inclusion can have on our communities. Interested in learning more? Check out the full line-up here.

Stay tuned for more updates next week! We have a lot of work to do to flip the second Congressional district, but we’re well on our way thanks to volunteers like you!

In partnership,
- Michelle De La Isla
