Feedback form is now closed.
It will take more grassroots leaders running for elected office and leading progressive campaigns to change the political landscape in Kentucky. And having more women and people of color stepping into those roles will be key. KFTC’s New Power PAC endorsed a record seventy candidates in the 2018 General Election; 38 of the candidates were women and 16 of the candidates were people of color. Join us for a lively panel discussion featuring women and people of color who have recently run for office in Kentucky sharing their experiences and insights.

This plenary discussion will be in BAIRD LOUNGE of the ALUMNI BUILDING.
