Sponsor Kansas City Defender

Connect With the Right People

The Kansas City Defender offers exclusive newsletter sponsorship, display advertising, content, and social media opportunities for businesses and opportunities in Kansas City and the surrounding area.

By working with The Kansas City Defender, you’ll be able to access a targeted audience unlike any other. Our audience includes politicians, the business class, Black youth, the activist community, white progressives, high school students, non-profit professionals, Black socially active people, and more – all in a localized context.

Build Awareness, Reach Influencers, Drive Purchases

Our newsletter ads take up more screen real estate than traditional banner ads and allow for custom content resulting in better engagement. With over 3,000 readers (and growing) we guarantee you will reach the right people.

Direct sale display ads are the perfect way to reach a local, targeted audience. The Kansas City Defender features a clean, clutter-free website design, which means your ads wont get lost. We offer header, sidebar, and inline placements for website display ads.

Looking for something different? We are happy to discuss underwritten and sponsored content, social media promotion, and events.

You Can Make a Difference

The Kansas City Defender is dedicated to producing information necessary for the survival and flourishing of Black people, and to distribute it in innovative and accessible ways. But we can’t do it alone. 

Together, we can nurture a future for our communities that works for everyone. Your support ensures we can keep providing in-depth local news and keep it free of charge.

Sponsoring The Kansas City Defender helps us pay our staff and cover all our expenses, including hiring freelancers, supporting our tech stack, administration, accounting, and more.
