Chapter: Western Kentucky

Western Kentucky is KFTC’s newest chapter!  

We share a vision of a Kentucky where people and communities matter above profits, taxes are fairly assessed, we empower voters and protect their rights, we defend our environment, basic needs are met for all, and we value our most vulnerable populations. We engage with these issues because it is our goal to achieve a more equitable and just society. Our chapter is dedicated to addressing these issues with our government and leaders and holding them accountable.

If you also share this vision, please join us for one of our upcoming chapter meetings or events. We’d love to see you there!

A major civil rights gathering will take place on March 5 in Frankfort as many people come together to mark the 50th anniversary of a historic civil rights march in 1964 led by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Everyone who is proud of Kentucky’s historic role in helping to end segregation in the nation and for being the first state south of the Mason-Dixon Line to have a state Civil Rights Act is enthusiastically invited to participate,” according to a press release from the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights.

The plant, which is close to completion, has been called “the last of its kind in this country” by the New York Times.
