For many Lexington College students justice and equality in the state of Kentucky is a mission near and dear to the heart. Kentuckians for the commonwealth is a statewide citizens organization working toward a new balance of power and a just society. Through direct action, KFTC works to challenge and change unfair political, economic and social systems. Their membership is open to all people who are committed to equality, democracy and non-violent change.
KFTC is truly a membership driven organization and their priorities are the issues that their members are facing in their home communities every day.
KFTC believes that for democracy to flourish all people must be active; everyone has a right and a responsibility to participate in the decisions and processes of our self-government. KFTC works to develop citizens into community leaders and helps people enhance the skills needed to participate effectively; they then give people the chance to practice these skills. Members are urged to try new experiences, learn new skills and celebrate their growth and achievements. KFTC wants to create a shared balance of power and equal enjoyment of benefits within political, economic and social systems. They do their best to identify and tackle the root causes of social, political, and economic problems to create long-term, systemic change. KFTC is living proof that hard work is not all drudgery. They take the time to celebrate large and small victories, and publicly recognize individual and group achievements.
Without community action from people like you none of this would be possible. If you would like to help you can join KFTC or make a donation.
