Additionally, the Latino Leadership Collective amplifies Latino voices in business, and advocates for high-level representation across the city’s leading companies.

Topeka proudly showcases the city’s Black history as well. The state made history as the site of the landmark Brown v.

In spite of this, there is some support in the area. Equality House, which has made headlines for its location directly across from Westboro Baptist Church, is an LGBTQ+ resource center and a strong visual testament to LGBTQ+ pride. PFLAG, a national body of affirming support groups for LGBTQ+ youths and parents, also has a chapter in Topeka.
