Making our voices heard in the KY General Assembly

KFTC members play an important role in issues that matter in the Kentucky General Assembly. We put the grassroots in grassroots lobbying! And we have a long track record of helping to pass important legislation, and stopping bad ideas before they become law.

Every winter our members make multiple trips to Frankfort to meet with legislators, testify before committees, and hold rallies and demonstrations at the Capitol. We share stories and information with legislators to promote ideas that can improve the quality of life in our state. And we hold lawmakers accountable if they ignore the needs of their constituents.

During the 2020 General Assembly, there are many ways you can help make a difference:

  • Come lobby with us in Frankfort! KFTC's grassroots lobbyists plan to be in Frankfort every Tuesday during the General Assembly between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. (We'll adjust when an ally has a major lobby day or rally, when there is a hearing or key vote, and as the action ramps up later in the session.) Everyone is welcome and first-time lobbyists are especially encouraged to join us! Training is provided.

  • Call or write your legislators to let them know your views on important issues.

  • Set up a meeting with your legislators in your home district during the off-season.
  • Call the toll-free Legislative Message Line (1-800-372-7181) to leave a message for any legislator or group of legislators.
