NKY Celebrates Pride, Remembers the Year Before

Two people swing by to learn more about KFTC's work at NKY Pride 21!

Northern Kentucky members came out this past Sunday (June 6th) to celebrate Pride with 100s of others in downtown Covington! The event featured performances from local drag performers, musicians, and others, booths from a variety of community groups, and the first chance for so many to gather safely during the pandemic. The event was lifegiving.

First time canvass reflections

Lance Soto of the American Indian Movement of Indiana and Kentucky and Logan Fedders prepare to canvass in Covington

Last Friday, May 21, I went door-to-door canvassing for the first time. We were walking around the neighborhood of City Heights to try and hear from the residents what impact the city’s disregard had on their lives. As this was my first time going door-to-door, I was partnered up with my coworker Bethany to help me understand the flow of conversation and all that.

Community Art Build (Online!)

Join KFTC members for virtual art building ahead of With Love, Kentucky! This event is a chance for members, especially in northern Kentucky and Rolling Bluegrass, to come together to talk about our vision, build art together, and make plans for how we can deliver it safely to Frankfort.

Webinar: Cultural sharing aims to help shape Kentucky

In this moment there is a lot that divides us – especially as the COVID-19 keeps many of us physically apart. With that in mind, it makes coming together all the more important. It's a chance to talk about what unites us, celebrating the diversity of culture that makes Kentucky such a wonderful place to call home, and to be together – even though many of us still can't visit each other.

NKY chapter hosts DACA and immigrant rights discussion

On March 26, the Northern Kentucky chapter cohosted a zoom video conversation about immigration rights. The call focused on the status of the DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals) program, the challenges facing the local immigrant community and how that fits into the unique moment we are in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.
