Racial Justice

KFTC is working for a day when discrimination is wiped out of our laws, habits, and hearts.

Carol Taylor-Shim leads KFTC staff in anti-oppression training

On Thursday, November 30, Carol Taylor-Shim led an Anti-Oppression training for KFTC’s staff team. Carol is currently the director of the Bias Incident Response team at the University of Kentucky, and has over a decade of experience in diversity, inclusion, and belonging and anti-racist/anti-oppression practice. She’s also a self-described “Liberation Superhero” (after this training, I would describe her that way, too). The training addressed the questions: 

  • What’s the difference between diversity, inclusion, and belonging?
  • How does oppression impact people and environments?
  • Why are people resistant?
  • What are potential next steps for KFTC?

Northern Kentucky chapter joins Immigrant Dignity Coalition

Following the recent ICE raids across northern Kentucky, and the resulting work the chapter has engaged in to protect immigrant families in northern Kentucky, the Northern Kentucky KFTC Chapter was asked to become members of the Immigrant Dignity Coalition. This coalition, made up of 28 groups/organizations in northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati, consists of business, labor, civil rights and faith communities in the greater Cincinnati area that favor the dignity and basic human rights of all people. We are citizens and immigrants working together to share educational and advocacy tools to create a more just world.
