Wilderness Trace | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Chapter: Wilderness Trace

Our chapter is located in central Kentucky's Wilderness Trace counties of Boyle, Mercer, Garrard, Lincoln, and Casey (Wilderness Trace is a historic name for this part of Kentucky).

We're concerned with sustainable energy issues – promoting local solar projects and addressing problems from the neighboring coal-burning power plant and slurry pond; Fairness – ensuring people can live in our community free from legal discrimination; affordable housing – making sure the people in these areas have good places to live; and economic justice in general – helping people have a voice and way to speak out.

We welcome all who want to be part of our growing group. Our monthly meetings are a great space to engage with other members and learn what we are currently working on.

Despite challenges, Kentuckians make an impact in Frankfort

You’ve made an impact during the 2021 General Assembly. Some of these impacts have been on legislation – a key meeting with a legislator that changes the course of a bill, or a push of calls and tweets that makes the will of the people more visible and harder to ignore. We also set a goal this session to continue to build the power we need. So many impacts have been in our own communities, talking with neighbors and networks about the bills that impact us, and the work of our legislators.
