We are hosting several grassroot lobby trainings around the state to help folks get geared up for the 2015 Kentucky General Assembly. We have an ambitious agenda of bills we'd like to get passed this year, and we need folks like you to represent the voices of everyday Kentuckians as these issues are debated. These trainings will teach you about KFTC's priority legislation, how to get in touch with our lawmakers, how to navigate the capitol, how to write letters to the editor, and more. You don't need experience talking about policy to lobby, you just need to tell your story. Anyone is welcome to attend.
January 12 - Big Sandy area training
January 15 - Central Kentucky training
January 22 - Madison County training
January 27 - Jefferson County training

An ordinance filed in September to raise Louisville's minimum wage to $10.10 an hour is very close to securing the 14 votes needed to pass a full vote of the Louisville Metro Council! But there is still work to be done. Both Metro Council Members and Mayor Fischer have said that they want to hear from their constituents. Your voice is crucial to getting the sponsors and the votes to pass this important legislation.
This is a big election year in Kentucky – with millions of dollars from outside the state trying to influence the outcomes and the eyes of the nation waiting for the results.
As Kentuckians, we have the opportunity to vote for candidates in a wide range of federal, state and local races on November 4. The outcomes will affect much that happens in our communities, state, nation and world in the years ahead.
