General Election: 11/6/2018
“For me, jobs and education are the things that we need to be working on because people of all colors, all races, all religions - they want to be able to provide for their family, they want to provide a good education for their kids because they want their kids to go on and have a better life than they did. Taking care of those two issues right there. We've got to get back to this country back to being about the working-class family.” - James Thompson
Justice Democrats is proud of supporting candidates with a positive vision for our future. As establishment strategies continue to fail the people, James Thompson fights for a platform to uplift the lives of the extraordinary people he would represent by replacing the incumbent and running on these important issues:
- Create a strong Kansas economy for working class families
- Fight for the U.S. Constitution and rights for all Americans
- Defend DACA and a firm, fair immigration policy
- Defending Medicare for All and Social Security
- Fight for Campaign Finance Reform
- Reform Criminal Justice System and Policing
- Combat homelessness
James Thompson pulled himself out of his cycle of poverty and homelessness through education that he received through public school then onto the United States Army. James served in the Army as an infantryman in the Presidential Honor Guard. Following an honorable discharge, James moved to Kansas to be close to family and used his GI Bill to attend Wichita State University and Washburn University Law School. Now, he is a civil rights attorney in Wichita who is running for Congress because he knows the opportunities afforded to him helped change his life, and those opportunities need to be available to future generations. He believes our elected offices should ensure people up and down the economic ladder have the ability to build a better, brighter future for themselves and their children. Regardless of race, nation of origin, gender, religion, socioeconomic background or intellectual ability, James will fight for a better Kansas for all Kansans.
Help us spread the message about James Thompson's mission to bring real change to Kansas District-04 and to America and make some calls!
