Racial Justice

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

Political education series applies abolitionist perspectives

In January, KFTC launched its first ever Political Education Series: Abolition 101. Rooted in police and prison abolitionist perspectives, this political education series depends on a curriculum that cultivates our collective imagination. When we come together to reimagine seemingly concrete structures in our communities, real change can take root. 

LexStand sponsors virtual town hall on Breonna’s Law

Kentuckians deserve more than what the General Assembly had to offer. That’s why LexStand for Breonna’s Law Coalition co-sponsored a virtual town hall with Mission Behind Bars and Beyond, Inc. and KFTC to support HB 21, Breonna’s Law, and to also push for Lexington to become the second Kentucky city with a local ban on no-knock warrants.

Amplifying and learning from the Louisville uprising

On March 13, Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) murdered Breonna Taylor – a 26-year-old Black woman, award-winning EMT and beloved community member – while she was resting in her own home. 

Coinciding with a nationwide uprising for racial justice and Black liberation, Breonna Taylor’s death has sparked a months-long resistance movement in Louisville and across Kentucky.
