Take action! Sign up for the Virtual Lobby Day for a Healthy Democracy here, Tuesday, Jan 25. 

On Tuesday, January 25, we'll gather online to push for the democracy Kentucky deserves, with convenient, fair, and accessible voting. We'll lobby for voting rights for people with felonies in their past, fair redistricting, longer polling hours, voting by mail, and more. The day will start with a training at 9am ET on Zoom. We’ll break into groups to talk virtually with our legislators about this issue, leave messages on the legislative message line (and encourage our friends to do the same), have a virtual rally, spokesperson training, workshops on social media and letters to the editor, and other events throughout the day.
