Home is a place to spend time with loved ones, rest and rejuvenate for the day to come. But for many Kentuckians, this isn’t an option. We have an opportunity to take down the walls and barriers to housing and renovate Kentucky’s housing policy.

Angela Briggs will share stories and experience from field organizing for renters’ rights in Barren County.
