Ladies Refugee Aid Society

The society was created by African American women in Lawrence, Kansas, many of them former slaves, to collect food, clothing, and money to assist other fugitive slaves entering the area from Missouri, Arkansas, and the Indian Territory.

The society was the first black women’s club in the West.
