Y'all Fall for Justice!

This Saturday the Rolling Bluegrass chapter invites you to join them in celebration of a momentous year, and to help us prepare for the coming year!

Reflections on the Georgetown Fairness victory

Photo taken by Mary Meehan of WEKU Radio. Danny Woolums, Jr, Georgeotwn native and CKY member, speaks about the need for Fairness at Georgetown Council meeting.

Georgetown passed a fairness ordinance on September 9, becoming the 13th Kentucky city to do so. Since writing this, Versailles became the next city to pass a fairness ordinance, and Highland Heights has had its first reading, with a second reading is scheduled for the 15th.

I am a retired public school teacher, an adjunct professor at Georgetown College, a mother of five children (two of whom are gay), and a grandmother to seven. My husband, a local pediatrician, and I both spoke in favor of the ordinance.

Y'all Fall For Justice!

Join members of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth for our annual Fall fundraiser! 

This year we are calling it "Y'all Fall For Justice"! We'll have live music from Liam's Fancy, a silent auction, games, food, and so much more! 

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.

Why speaking out should matter to everyone

Last Monday, August 26, 2019, started out as just another workday for me. I was tired. I’d been working a lot lately, and I had many chores to do at home. I had grocery shopping to do. I had a full day of work ahead of me before I could attend to anything on my to-do list. At that point, early in the morning and with half a cup of coffee, all I had planned to do after work was more work.
