Chapter: Southern Kentucky

Do you want Bowling Green’s best characteristics to grow even faster than Bowling Green itself?

So do we. So join us in working for fair housing, clean and affordable energy, and in building local support for our statewide work on tax justice, voting rights, and clean, safe and affordable energy options.

Working together, we are building the movement for economic, environmental and social justice in southern Kentucky.

We’d love to have you join for our monthly meetings every 4th Tuesday at The Foundry. Bring your friends!

Renters' handbook brings new community resource for southern Kentucky tenants

Southern Kentucky Renters' Handbook Launch Party 3.24.14Last week, several Southern Kentucky members gathered on WKU’s campus to celebrate the long-awaited launch of an informational and educational handbook. The Homeless and Housing Coalition of South Central Kentucky hopes the Barren River Area Renters' handbook will help lower eviction rates and improve the experience of renting a home for the more than 67,000 renters in the Barren River Area.

Southern Kentucky participates in general assembly, expands local housing work

It’s been a busy year so far for Southern Kentucky members. The year started off with action in support of House Bill 70, which would restore the right to vote to most former felons in Kentucky once their sentence is complete. Local members met with five legislators on January 15, and all five have since voted in support of the bill. With recent changes in House Bill 70, which is now in the form of a committee substitute (you can read about that HERE), members will be contacting those same legislators and requesting they hold true to the original House version of the bill and not support the recent changes. Current and upcoming actions include calls,e-mails, and visits to legislators and letters to the editor in papers here at home.

Southern Kentucky Update

On September 24, Southern Kentucky KFTC members came together for their regular monthly chapter meeting with many big updates and even bigger plans for the next few months.

Steering Committee representatives updated members on the recent steering committee retreat held in Whitesburg, which provided both an orientation to newly elected representatives and an exciting start to our Fall Fundraising campaign. Several local members have agreed to participate in our Power Builders program, joining members all across Kentucky to celebrate KFTC’s focus on growing a healthy democracy as we raise funds, awareness, and members. To see how to join in this HUGE event, visit our KFTC POWER BUILDER page.

Bike Parade in Bowling Green!

Rolling through streets and neighborhoods, members of the Southern KY chapter of KFTC visited the Westside where we have focused our canvassing, reminding people to vote with home made signs and our voices.  We then visited two polling places and WKU, and finished on the square downtown.

We also did two interviews and video for WKU-TV with Ka'Seana Blanton and had a photographer follow us around for the whole ride.

We're also giving rides to the polls and fielding phone calls, and doing it all in style.

Here in the Central KY time zone, we have just over two hours left before the polls close.
