Last Thursday nearly 200 people gathered in the rotunda to share prayer, cheers, stories of triumph, and a call for the General Assembly to do one simple thing: "Let Us Vote".
This Thursday (February 26th) members of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and allies will be gathering at the Capitol for a focus lobby day and rally in support of voting rights for former felons, and ask the Kentucky General Assembly to Let Us Vote! We hope you will join us in asking legislators to pass House Bill 70, and let the people vote on voting rights for former felons.
KFTC members are encouraged to register and attend for the 2015 Strategy Summit of the Shaping Our Appalachian Region (SOAR) initiative. The initiative was established by Gov. Steve Beshear and Rep. Hal Rogers in 2013. It’s mission is ”to expand job creation, enhance regional opportunity, innovation, and identity,improve the quality of life, and support all those working to achieve these goals in Appalachian Kentucky.”
We hope you will join Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and our allies for a lobby day and rally focused on restoration of voting rights for former felons!
The improv troupe Highly Improvable is doing a show to raise money to support Kentuckians For The Commonwealth! In addition to great comedy, the show will have great music provided by the Red Cedars, and members of KFTC will be on hand selling KFTC merchandise.
