Vision, Mission and History


Equal opportunity for every Kansan to pursue success and the fulfillment of their individual promise of liberty as set out in America’s founding documents.


We engage citizens and policymakers with research and information to enact public policy solutions that protect the constitutional right to freedom of all Kansans, give them greater access to better educational opportunities, and allow them to keep more of what they earn. By protecting and promoting freedom, we will improve everyone’s quality of life, make Kansas more competitive with other states, and attract new citizens and businesses.


KPI was formed in 1996 in Wichita as a 501(c)3 non-profit research and educational organization. A second office was opened in Overland Park in 2012.
