Chapter: Shelby County

The Saddlebred Horse Capital of the World is the home of KFTC's newest chapter – the Shelby County KFTC group became an official chapter in October 2012. The Shelby County Horse Fair each June represents just one slice of the extensive agricultural diversity that exists cheek-by-jowl with rapid residential and commercial development.

Shelby Countians seeking to make positive change in our community have been working since 2012 to reform the Shelby Energy Rural Electic Cooperative, and have started work on other issues of economic and social justice, including putting an end to wage theft, discrimination and animal cruelty.

We welcome everyone interested in improving economic and social justice in Shelby County. Please join us is building a more modern, just, equal and strong Shelby County.
