K-STEP Awards! - Paula Keiser "For the Kids" Award

At K-STEP, we strive to recognize individuals and organizations in Kansas who help achieve equality, awareness, and education for transgender Kansans and their families.

The For the Kids Award is named for Paula Keiser. Paula's passion for creating a better future for transgender youth is evidenced by the ending statement she would make in emails and conversations - "For the Kids". She was involved in many efforts to help make certain that today's youth would find an easier road to travel. Her dedication to this cause has unquestionably accomplished her hopes and dreams in many ways.
