Young social activist and feminist, Jana Lynne Mackey, was taken from this world before her noble and inspiring work was completed. She dedicated her short life to pursuing social justice and equality for all.
Jana was locally and nationally known for her advocacy for women’s rights. This 25 year old KU law
student had worked on several state and national political campaigns, served three years as one of the youngest lobbyists at the Kansas State Capitol for the National Organization for Women and the Kansas Equality Coalition, and she had volunteered endless hours caring for sexual assault and domestic violence victims.
One dear friend said when describing Jana, “Never was there a more caring, more compassionate, more brilliant woman with each of these qualities and more wrapped into the heart of one activist.” Jana Mackey represented all that is good in this world.
