The life of Jana Mackey was about equality, love and justice. Jana’s Campaign, Inc. was created by her family and friends to help make Jana’s values become reality. We are confident that we are heading in the right direction in building a strong, caring and impactful organization that has the capability of producing powerful results.
We are a national group of activists, advocates and volunteers who are committed to continuing Jana’s work of protecting women. At the heart of our movement are Dr. Christie Brungardt (Jana’s mother) and Dr. Curt Brungardt (Jana’s stepfather). Both Christie and Curt are professors of leadership studies at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. Dr. Christie Brungardt’s expertise includes women and leadership and women’s studies, while Dr. Curt Brungardt specializes in political leadership, social change, and community organizing. To contact or to ask the Brungardts about a possible speaking engagement, please see this link.
Supporting the Brungardts are dozens of advocates, including Jana’s Campaign staff members, active board members, college interns, and volunteers all working at the local, state, national and international level to reduce gender-based violence.
