Voting Rights

At KFTC we believe that an authentic, participatory democracy is a key to building New Power. Our democracy works best when everyone has a voice and a vote.

We want a better quality of life for all Kentuckians, and that happens when more Kentuckians participate in decisions affecting our lives. We work to erase obstacles created by racism, economic disparity or the unjust power of money in our electoral system. 

Together, we’re building a stronger democracy and New Power.
