Kansas: Kenya Cox to Resign as Executive Director of KAAAC

Topeka, KS (STL.News) Kenya Cox today announced her resignation as Executive Director of the Kansas African American Affairs Commission (KAAAC).

“I want to express my deep thanks to Kenya Cox for her service in my administration, on the African American Affairs Commission, and to communities of color across Kanas,” Governor Kelly said.  “Not only did Kenya spearhead initiatives to reshape the Commission and its work, but she did so between two different administrations and through a once-in-a-century health crisis.  I’m particularly grateful for her and her fellow Commission members’ partnership and efforts to provide information, advocacy, and support services to Black Kansans through each phase of our COVID-19 response.”

KAAAC’s work during Cox’s tenure as Executive Director included:

  • Advocating to protect and expand voting rights
  • Helping spearhead the Brown v. Board Mural at the Kansas Statehouse
  • Leading events during Black History Month, Martin Luther King Day, and Juneteenth
  • Partnering with KDHE to increase COVID-19 testing, and later vaccine administration

“I have a love and commitment to Kansas’ African American communities, and I want to thank Governor Kelly for the opportunity to work with this administration on their behalf,” Cox said.
