Here’s some highlights from the May Jefferson County Chapter meting:
There are many important stories coming out of the 2014 General Assembly – the outcomes of bills, the work of citizen lobbyists, the story of all the rallies and lobby days KFTC participated in.
For me, one of the highlights of KFTC’s work in the General Assembly – and, really, a highlight of all the work KFTC does – is the leadership development that happens around the session.
Throughout the session, KFTC is committed to developing leaders and helping their voices be heard. Whether it’s my friend Al lobbying for the first time. Or Mantell from Lexington taking his turn at the mic in front of the large crowd at the Voting Rights Rally. Or all the KFTC members who serve on various strategy teams that, throughout the session, contribute to our collective game plan … KFTC is about developing leaders.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about KFTC’s approach to leadership development.
This powerpoint presentation was used for a "Power Up!" webinar on our work to restore voting rights for former felons, an overview of the history of voting rights in Kentucky, and some information regarding the potential impact of more stringent voter id laws.
This presentation gives an overview of KFTC's approach to grassroots lobbying and an overview of issues affecting the 2014 KY General Assembly.
Join KFTC every Monday night during the Kentucky General Assembly (January through March) for a discussion about imporant issues affecting Kentuckians, and ways you can make your voice heard. Tonight's discussion is an overview of the 2014 KY General Assembly so far. We'll talk about the status and fate of a number of bills important to KFTC members.
