Tornado Relief Information

Posted by: KFTC Staff on December 14, 2021

Our hearts are with family, friends, and members in western and southern Kentucky who were impacted by this weekend’s devastating storms.

The immediate needs are enormous, but so is the outpouring of care. We're updating a list of ways to give or receive support at bit.ly/WKYDEC21

As always, Kentuckians pull through by pulling together. Here are a few of the many ways you can donate or lend a hand:

Kentuckians – including members of KFTC staff, climate canvassing crew, and just transition fellows – lost their loved ones, their homes, and their sense of safety this weekend. We’re raising funds to support our team. 

All donations made at this link will be given to KFTC staff, climate canvassers, and just transition fellows impacted by the storm. Any additional funds beyond their needs will be given to other relief efforts. 

Let's take care of our neighbors today, and strengthen our commitment to ending the climate crisis. Let’s choose each other.

Thank you!

SOKY chapter creates People’s Guide to Planning

Posted by: KFTC Staff on July 19, 2021

From protecting natural resources to building apartment complexes, decisions about our communities and day to day lives happen through local planning and zoning. We see the impacts of these decisions when Black neighborhoods face displacement, when gentrification pushes the working class out of affordable housing, and when pollution in our air and water hurts our bodies. While planning processes are designed to shape the future of Kentucky cities, planning and zoning are often difficult for the public to offer input into and to navigate.  

Reflections from KFTC's outgoing leadership

Cassia HerronI’ve spent over a week attempting to write a “good-bye” letter for this issue. Instead of a letter it seems I’ve inked part of a chapter for a memoir. It was hard to capture in a few hundred words what it’s been like to serve in this role and share parting words for your consideration. In its place, I’ll offer you the letter I penned for our 2020 annual report.
