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!

Residents of many mid-west towns, including Princeton and Paducah in western Kentucky, are beginning to face the sticker-shock of paying for the new Prairie State project, a 1600 MW coal-burning power plant developed by Peabody Energy. The plant, which is close to completion, has been called “the last of its kind in this country” by the New York Times.
