The GOTV Gala (formerly Stand Up, Speak Out) is the primary fundraising event for The Voter Network.

All funds raised help keep our lights on so we can continue expanding voting access – especially within communities that have been routinely undermined in the political process. For over 20 years we have hosted one of the largest annual nonpartisan social gatherings of elected officials, candidates, and voting rights advocates in Kansas. We've come together to celebrate and draw motivation from special guests such as Governor Laura Kelly, CNN political Commentator Van Jones, and Academy Award-winner and two-time Sundance Film Festival Director Kevin Willmott.
