Voter Empowerment

Have you filled out your Census form yet? How's your county doing so far?

Census 2020

The U.S. census is a critically important tool that helps determine how much funding for health services a particular community gets, how many electoral votes a state has, or where state legislature maps are drawn. It's important that we're all counted, though we also know that some lower income and rural communities don't get fully counted.  That means our communities and our state end up missing out on funding and electoral power.

And in this moment, census worker aren't able to go door-to-door. We need to step in and help get every person living in Kentucky counted. 

Call on your Legislator to Oppose SB 2. We can’t make voting harder right now.

Will you take a few minutes to tell legislators not to override Gov. Beshear’s veto of Senate Bill 2?
We don’t need slower voting lines, more restrictions that make it harder for registered voters to vote, or to implement a new and complicated 57-page bill to limit voting. Not now and not ever. 

Andy Beshear vetoes voter ID bill, says it would ‘create an obstacle’ to voting

Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear on Friday vetoed a controversial bill that would have required people to show photo identification before they could vote in Kentucky elections.

In his veto message, Beshear wrote Senate Bill 2 “would create an obstacle to the ability of Kentuckians to exercise their right to vote, resulting in fewer people voting and undermining our democracy.”

Healthy Democracy Day Success


We had our Healthy Democracy Day in Frankfort yesterday bringing about 100 Kentuckians to Frankfort to share their vision for a real Democracy in Kentucky and to fight for it.

We had 9 lobby teams, recruited 7 bill co-sponsorships, had 24 legislative meetings, had 15 powerful speakers, and really laid the groundwork to stop SB 62 this session, and pass HB 6 next session while weaving an overall vision of what kind of Democracy we want more than we have before in Frankfort.
