Valentine’s Day Grassroots Lobbying Week

We Are Kentuckians & We Love Kentucky!

Valentine’s Day Grassroots Lobbying Week

February 14 to February 20, 2016

Showing our love and making our voices heard in the 2016 Kentucky General Assembly

Justice for Gynnya!

Last month, a young girl named Gynnya McMillen died while in custody at Juvenile Detention Center in Elizabethtown. Gynnya’s life mattered.

Her death has drawn national attention. There were clear violations of the safety protocols: She wasn’t checked on according to protocol. Nobody tried immediately to resuscitate her when she was found. And the night before her death, she was placed in what’s been called an “Aikido restraint” for not removing her sweatshirt.

Let Us Vote: Let's pass HB 70 out of the Senate

House Bill 70, the bill proposing a constitutional amendment to automatically restore voting rights to most former felons after they have served their time, has been reassigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. This year, the bill passed out of the House again and was assigned to the Senate State and Local Government Committee. However, at the end of last week, the bill was reassigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. This is a new committee for HB 70 and we need to make sure the Senate Judiciary committee knows it is time to Let Us Vote!

Act Now to Grow Clean Energy Jobs in KY

Benham Power Project -- March 2014

Please join us in urging state lawmakers to act now to grow clean energy jobs in Kentucky. Kentucky workers deserve to benefit from the booming growth of renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors. However, unless legislators take action, we will continue to lag behind as other states embrace and benefit from the growing clean energy economy.

Here are two important ways you can make your voice heard!

Watch the State of the Commonwealth address

On January 26, Governor Matt Bevin is delivering a combined State of the Commonwealth and the Budget Address. It’s an opportunity for Kentuckians to weigh in with our vision for Kentucky, and good policies to get us there.

Keep Kynect working for Kentucky

Call the Governor’s office and let Governor Bevin know that you support keeping Kynect.

Kentuckians have a number of important opportunities to take action for clean energy in the coming week. Please mark your calendars, take action, and show support for a clean energy future.

Support KFTC's work by becoming a Sustaining Giver

You can join a growing group of dedicated members who are choosing to become Sustaining Givers. Through an automatic recurring gift, you can help ensure that KFTC’s important work keeps happening every day, all year long. Here's why being a Sustaining Giver is a win-win for you and KFTC:

  • You get to choose how much and how often you give.
