Speak Out! Stop LG&E and KU from raising – and rigging – rates

All Kentuckians need and deserve affordable and clean energy.

Support our coal communities and miners with Black Lung

Your help is needed right now – today – to demand that Senator McConnell and other members of Congress do right by our miners and coal communities.

Help KFTC get out the vote!

This is a critical election year for our voices to be heard, but it only works if you join us out in the fields and on the phones to connect with voters, talk about issues and values, and ask them to vote. KFTC is rising to the challenge with members connecting with their neighbors through community events, door-to-door canvasses, and phone banks. Will you volunteer some of your time? Find an opportunity near you and sign up!

Support Black Lung benefits for miners and their families

 

This September, a delegation of nearly 40 Appalachians from at least eight states – including eight KFTC members – are in Washington DC to meet with members of Congress and push for urgently needed legislation for a Just Transition for miners, their families and their communities. 

Register for the annual meeting

The KFTC Annual Membership Meeting is fast approaching. Register now and reserve your spot. Scholarships are available by request.

Families Belong Together

What is happening now at the U.S. border – ripping families apart and incarcerating children in warehouses and cages – is immoral and deeply damaging to those families, to global human rights, and to our own souls. It goes against every value we hold as Kentuckians.

Get on the bus to D.C.

Join Kentuckians from across the state as we join with more than 30 other states in taking our message of racial, economic and environmental justice and a peace economy to our state capital.

Ask Governor Bevin to veto Youth Incarceration Bill

The 2018 General Assembly is mostly over, with just a few days left for the Governor to veto bills. Members and Kentuckians are processing, listening, and strategizing about what comes next. In the meantime, take this one last action.

Please call Governor Bevin and ask him to veto House Bill 169.

IMPORTANT: NO votes needed Friday on veto overrides

Action Needed

Please contact your legislator as soon as possible in any and all ways that you can. There are several ways to contact legislators:  

1)  Legislative Message Line: 800-372-7181. Leave a message for your representative and senator, and “for all Democrats.” The message line is open until 9 p.m. EDT tonight and opens at 7 a.m. Friday morning.

2)  Call their offices directly at 502-564-8100. 

3)  Email them

MESSAGE:Vote NO to override the vetoes on HB 366 and HB 200. The governor's vetoes are the legislature's opportunity to do the right thing. Scrap the budget, scrap the tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, and start over with the aim of investing in Kentucky's future.”

Legislators reconvene at 10 a.m. Friday, so please call as soon as you can.

This is important!
THANKS FOR TAKING ACTION.

Can you raise your voice one more time during this General Assembly? Contact your legislators now and ask them to vote NO on the motions to override the vetoes of the budget bill and tax bill. Here’s why:

KFTC members work everyday for a vision that includes strong public schools, new jobs and clean energy, health care for all of us, a justice system that is just, and opportunities for young people. To reach that vision we need a tax system that is fair and moves Kentucky forward.

The Kentucky General Assembly passed legislation that is just the opposite of that vision. Besides a bad pension bill, they passed a budget (House Bill 200) that makes significant cuts to education (including zero funding for textbooks and other necessary school programs) and cuts to most other services across the board.
