Who We Are
The Flint Hills Human Rights Project is a volunteer organization dedicated to serving the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and all sexuality and gender minorities, plus their friends and allies, in Manhattan, Kansas and the Flint Hills region of Kansas.
The organization is led by its Board of Directors, who meet monthly. Members of the organization support the activities of FHHRP and enjoy connecting through social events, volunteering, and activism.
Our primary mission is to use the political process and advocacy to ensure and promote dignity, safety, equality for and the civil and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, intersex and questioning (LGBTTIQ) individuals in the Clay, Geary, Marshall, Morris, western Pottawatomie, Riley, western Wabaunsee and Washington counties of Kansas.
The organization seeks to promote a society where people of all classes, races, sexual orientations, and gender identities can enjoy complete sexual and reproductive freedom and expression, as part of their full enjoyment of life, without fear of harassment, physical harm, or economic or legal penalty. We are committed to the principle that access to political, social, cultural, and economic resources is a fundamental right of all, and we work to create sexual, racial, social, cultural and economic equity through grassroots organizing, public education, advocacy, support, and research.
