Northern Kentucky | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Chapter: Northern Kentucky

If you believe that Northern Kentucky communities are best served by honoring diversity and promoting sustainability, then join the Northern Kentucky chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth.

The chapter began in Northern Kentucky in 2010, and has been active working to build a more just and sustainable community. From concerts, to film series, to candidate forums, our chapter is always working to find ways to better engage and work within our community. We hope you can join us, and help build a better Kentucky.

Louisville

As we stood under the blazing sun in Jefferson Square Park with our signs and petitions, Greta Thurnburg was delivering this quote to the United Nations, “You must unite behind the science. You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up can never ever be an option.” 

At the Louisville Climate Strike, attendees were ready to unite and take action. KFTC Chairperson Cassia Herron spoke of the importance of voting and fighting against political bullying. Generations young and old clapped and hollered in solidarity. 

We knew that giving up on the planet and our future is not an option.

As much as humanity believes the ideology that we are invincible, that is obviously not the case.

NKY Sustainability Tour Saturday!

Join Kentuckians For The Commonwealth this Saturday, September 21, for our first ever Sustainability Tour around the heart of Covington! We will be visiting key places around town that are using sustainable practices in their business and strategies that could be used all around to make a eco-friendlier community. Environmental policies will also be a point of discussion, such as how SNAP and double dollars can be used to promote local agriculture, on-bill financing of energy improvements, increase access to local foods, public transit, clean energy and opportunity act, and more – come learn with us! The tour will end with a hike on the Licking River Greenway Trails, a chance to appreciate our Mother Earth and recapture on all that was discussed earlier in the day.
