Kansas State Convention

01 May 2021
Location: Bluemount Hotel in Manhattan
URL: https://lpks.org/event/2021-lpks-state-convention-2021-05-01
Plan: Table and possibly a hospitality suite
Participants: Bowen Chapel, Cullene Lang, Eric Lund
Outcome: Radical caucus hosted the first ever hospitality suite at a Kansas convention; was very popular. Willing to host one again at future LPKS conventions. Set up the table early so got the best spot - first table for people to see as they got off the elevators and as they left the convention floor. Buttons and stickers were popular. "Abolish the ..." were the most popular and all the 'taxation is left' stickers are gone. I also made an extra 12 buttons that said "Good ideas don't require force." They were all taken. Not many tri-fold pamphlets were taken however. Great improvement in the Kansas platform. It used to say "We support legalization of medicinal cannabis under a doctor’s supervision. We also support the legalization and regulation of cannabis for personal use for adults of legal age." Now it reads, "We believe the so-called ‘War on Drugs’ is a war on innocent people. We call for an end to the prohibition of any drug." Also, I was elected Secretary of the LPKS. Best attended LPKS convention with around 75 total attending with 60 being delegates. Hope that becomes the new baseline for future LPKS conventions.

Minnesota State Convention

08 May 2021
Location: Cabria Suites in Maple Grove
URL: https://www.lpmn.org/2021-lpmn-state-convention/
Plan: Table; need buttons and other materials; printing banner
Principle Participant: Joe Proveaux
Outcome: Re:brochures, I think maybe 1-2 dozen went out. Lpmn took the rest on the table, asked if they could hand them out everywhere. [...] I would say all the buttons were popular, except for the Assange, "re-legalize" and the LPRC buttons. I have the LPRC buttons. All the buttons left the table
