Racial Justice | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Racial Justice

KFTC is working for a day when discrimination is wiped out of our laws, habits, and hearts.

Governor's race could decide whether 100K+ Kentuckians regain the right to vote

AN ESTIMATED 312,000 KENTUCKIANS CAN'T VOTE BECAUSE OF A FELONY CONVICTION. THAT COULD CHANGE AFTER THE STATE'S GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION ON NOV. 5.

Singing For Democracy

Join KFTC and allies to celebrate our democracy through music and movement! Listen to those who are shut out of our democracy, as well as folks who have only recently been able to be a part of it. 

KFTC beginning a Racial Justice Assessment and Visioning process

Late this spring, KFTC began a Racial Justice Assessment and Visioning process. This update is the first of what will likely be an ongoing series where we’ll share updates on what we’re learning, activities we’re engaging in, and potential next steps as we go through this process. 

In June 2018, the KFTC Steering Committee held a racial justice workshop for its summer retreat. Coming out of the workshop were three ideas the Steering Committee wanted to explore: 1) a racial justice audit or assessment of KFTC’s overall work; 2) a People of Color Caucus for members and staff; and 3) a Racial Justice Advisory Committee. 

After further discussion, the People of Color Caucus has gotten underway and the Steering Committee put on hold the Racial Justice Advisory Committee until after we go through the assessment process.
