KFTC Organizing Academy Cohort Training

Session One: Organizing, Power, and KFTC 

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?

Get Out Film Screening

The Scott County chapter co-hosted a showing of the film Get Out with allies in Georgetown as a continuation of a racial justice film series.

Candidate Exploration Workshop

Are you or someone you know thinking about running for elected office in 2018? If so, KFTC has a great opportunity for you. Our Candidate Exploration Workshop will bring together KFTC members and allies who want to connect their personal strengths, values, and drive with their desire to serve their community in elected office.

Members Host Constitutional Convention Workshops!

Late last year members of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth and allies began to notice an increased presence of organizations working to pass a call for a constitutional convention in Kentucky. We began to work closely with allies to learn more about the issue, and came out in force to help make sure that the proposed 'con con' didn't receive a vote in the last General Assembly.
