We Need a Just Transition—Because We Should Abandon Coal, Not Coal Workers

Taking care of those communities distressed by the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is an economic and ethical imperative.

The coal industry is dying. But we can’t allow the communities that have been dependent on coal to die along with it.

NKY Sustainability Tour Saturday!

Join Kentuckians For The Commonwealth this Saturday, September 21, for our first ever Sustainability Tour around the heart of Covington! We will be visiting key places around town that are using sustainable practices in their business and strategies that could be used all around to make a eco-friendlier community. Environmental policies will also be a point of discussion, such as how SNAP and double dollars can be used to promote local agriculture, on-bill financing of energy improvements, increase access to local foods, public transit, clean energy and opportunity act, and more – come learn with us! The tour will end with a hike on the Licking River Greenway Trails, a chance to appreciate our Mother Earth and recapture on all that was discussed earlier in the day.
