Now in its 24th year, The Community Voice is the leading, most-trusted voice of Kansas’ African-American community, and has extended its reach to become a progressive voice across the state. The multi-platform publication educates and inspires its readers with regular articles on finance and health, informs them with community and regional news, and entertains them through a calendar of events, social coverage and contests.

Since 1996, Wichita native Bonita Gooch has grown The Community Voice from a small local monthly publication to one of the largest and most widely circulated non-daily papers in the state of Kansas. Join us on May 1 at our monthly luncheon to hear from Bonita on the importance of niche publications and how she has worked to establish the paper as a critical voice in the African-American community and beyond.

WPC monthly meetings and annual fundraisers support a scholarship fund for Wichita-area students pursuing a career in communications. So come network, eat lunch, get inspired by guest speakers and help a future communication colleague in the process!
