NKY Celebrates Pride, Remembers the Year Before

Two people swing by to learn more about KFTC's work at NKY Pride 21!

Northern Kentucky members came out this past Sunday (June 6th) to celebrate Pride with 100s of others in downtown Covington! The event featured performances from local drag performers, musicians, and others, booths from a variety of community groups, and the first chance for so many to gather safely during the pandemic. The event was lifegiving.

First time canvass reflections

Lance Soto of the American Indian Movement of Indiana and Kentucky and Logan Fedders prepare to canvass in Covington

Last Friday, May 21, I went door-to-door canvassing for the first time. We were walking around the neighborhood of City Heights to try and hear from the residents what impact the city’s disregard had on their lives. As this was my first time going door-to-door, I was partnered up with my coworker Bethany to help me understand the flow of conversation and all that.

Political education series applies abolitionist perspectives

In January, KFTC launched its first ever Political Education Series: Abolition 101. Rooted in police and prison abolitionist perspectives, this political education series depends on a curriculum that cultivates our collective imagination. When we come together to reimagine seemingly concrete structures in our communities, real change can take root. 

LexStand sponsors virtual town hall on Breonna’s Law

Kentuckians deserve more than what the General Assembly had to offer. That’s why LexStand for Breonna’s Law Coalition co-sponsored a virtual town hall with Mission Behind Bars and Beyond, Inc. and KFTC to support HB 21, Breonna’s Law, and to also push for Lexington to become the second Kentucky city with a local ban on no-knock warrants.
