🇺🇸 SHARICE DAVIDS Democrat for US House / Kansas


Sharice Davids is a dedicated community leader who is running to fight for Kansans in Congress.

She was raised by her single mother, who is a U.S. Army veteran, in Leavenworth and learned the value of hard work and service from a young age.

As a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, Sharice could make history as the first Native American woman elected to Congress. “It wasn't part of my decision. [...] but I'm definitely proud to be part of this time in history,” she has said.

Sharice studied business administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and received her law degree from Cornell Law School.

She worked for a law firm in Kansas City on issues including economic development for Native American tribes.
She then went on to live and work on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Sharice served as a White House Fellow during the final year of the Obama administration.

Most recently, Sharice hosted a podcast called “Starty Pants,” where she interviewed entrepreneurs and investors.

She has also competed in mixed martial arts tournaments, fighting both professionally and as an amateur.

In addition to making history as the first Native American woman in Congress,
Sharice could also be the first openly gay member of the Kansas congressional delegation and the first Democratic woman to represent the 3rd District.

An opportunity to flip a seat and take back the House

Sharice is challenging Congressman Kevin Yoder, a vulnerable Republican who has been advancing his party’s dangerous agenda at the expense of the working families he was elected to serve.

“Kevin Yoder no longer represents the people of Kansas,” she has said. “He is now a rubber stamp for the Trump administration and the big-money donors who have fueled his campaigns.”

This is an opportunity to flip a seat and win back the House for Democrats.

Honestly, this remarkable young woman embodies the Past, Present & Future face of America.

Honor, dignity, fairness & fight.
What an Impressive candidate we have been given to carry our torch forward this year.

She represents every person that Trump's White Male Patriarchy mocks & refuses to represent.

Proudly lend your full support to Sharice Davids.
