I Love Mountains Day 2015
KFTC members and allies will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the I Love Mountains Day Rally and Lobby Day on Thursday February 12. If you plan on attending this year, please fill out the registration form at the bottom of this page.
Schedule of the day
9 a.m. to 12 p.m. – Citizen Lobbying for the Mountains & Mountain Communities:
Start your I Love Mountains Day off by arriving a little early for time to lobby your state lawmakers. Call ahead of time to schedule an appointment with your State Representative and State Senator. You can find out who your lawmakers and reach them by calling (502) 564-8100. On February 12th, meet-up with KFTC folks in the Capitol Annex cafeteria to grab some lobby materials and help getting started on your way.
12 p.m. — Gather at the Kentucky River Bridge
Begin your I Love Mountains Day experience at the foot of the Kentucky River. This is where we will all gather, practice a few songs and chants, and kick-off our march.
12:30 p.m. — March to the Capitol
Hold your home-made signs up high and raise your voice – we are taking our message to the Capitol! As a unified voice, hundreds of us will march together the ½ mile up Capital Avenue to the front steps of the Capitol.
1:15 - 2:00 p.m. — Rally on the Capitol steps
Keep those chants going as we hold an energizing and fun rally on the front-steps of the Kentucky Capitol. Listen to rousing leaders who are leading the charge for an end to mountaintop removal and transition to a new, clean energy economy.
