We Are Kentuckians & We Love Kentucky!

Valentine’s Day Grassroots Lobbying Week

February 14 to February 20, 2016

Showing our love and making our voices heard in the 2016 Kentucky General Assembly

Kentuckians For The Commonwealth members play an important role in issues that matter in the Kentucky General Assembly. We put the grassroots in grassroots lobbying! Our members share stories and information with legislators to promote ideas that can improve the quality of life in our state. And we hold lawmakers accountable if they ignore the needs of their constituents. Show your love for Kentucky and your fellow Kentuckians by taking action as a Grassroots Lobbyist this Valentine’s Day Week! There are many ways you can show your love and help make a difference from the comfort of your home!
