Central Kentucky | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Chapter: Central Kentucky

The Central Kentucky chapter is one of the oldest chapters within KFTC. We are a diverse group of people who care about making our communities healthy and safe for all people. Our chapter members are interested in a range of issues, but currently we are working on educating folks about democracy through our voter empowerment work. We're also focusing on building economic, environmental and racial justice in Lexington and the Central Kentucky area. Please join us at our next chapter meeting or at one of our upcoming events. Meet other chapter members to learn about the exciting work we're doing and how you can be a part of it!

A Day in the Life of a First Time Lobbyist

Reflections from a first time lobbyist by central Kentucky KFTC member Jessica Barnett

This past Tuesday I had the opportunity to lobby in Frankfort for the first time. I tagged along with veteran KFTC lobbyists who helped me out as I learned the system. They began by showing me around the Capitol Annex where the Senate and House of Representative's offices are located. Although it was confusing at first, by the end of the day I had a general idea of how to get around.
