You Voted. Now What? Talk to your elected representatives. Hold them accountable. Tell them what matters to you. Democracy thrives when the voices of ordinary citizens are listened to and valued. 

Effective Grassroots Lobbying Training

We’ll review how the legislative process works and discuss best practices for making your voice heard on important issues. We’ll also discuss some of the priority issues KFTC is supporting this year, and take a tour of the Capitol Annex and Capitol Building.

Great crowd and lots to learn at KFTC’s fifth annual Growing Appalachia conference

About 190 people attended KFTC’s fifth annual Growing Appalachia conference in Prestonsburg, a record for the one-day event focused on ways people in eastern Kentucky can earn or save money or grow a business through agriculture and clean energy solutions.

“What we are seeing across eastern Kentucky is nothing short of revolutionary,” said panelist Ralph Davis, who manages the Floyd County Farmer’s market. “People are returning to family farming. They are taking ownership of their lives and doing something new. Farming is an act of creation. And it is one of the ways this region can heal.”

Among the crowd were many students and teachers, including 15 middle schoolers from Letcher County, high school students from Floyd County, and college students from the University of Pikeville and Big Sandy Community and Technical College, among others. As a teacher from Letcher County explained, “We are just getting started this year with a garden at our school and have plans to build a greenhouse. We are all learning together and thought this would be a great experience.”
