​​Together Frankfort 2022 Annual Meeting - January 6, 2022


Ring in the New Year 2022! Together Frankfort was established on January 6, 2017, and each year we have celebrated that date with an Anniversary Gathering. Prior to Covid-19, we gathered in person, cut our birthday cake, and made plans.


  • Since Covid, we have gathered via Zoom. We invite you to join us this year, again.

  • We will discuss what went well in 2021 and how we can build on successes.

  • We will make plans for 2022 - 2023.

  • Let's support each other, our community, and the amazing power of civic engagement.

  • Register in advance for this webinar.
    ​  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.


Our History: Several Frankfort neighbors and friends came together to discuss national issues affecting our lives, particularly the lives of women. A new administration was planning to roll back the Affordable Care Act, which had greatly improved access to health care in Kentucky.


We have worked together for the past 5 years on a variety of issues, including dark money, First Amendment rights, environmental concerns and climate change, conducting voter registration campaigns, candidate forums, election reform, redistricting, criminal justice reform, and many, many more. What civic issues are of great concern to you? What would you like to help work on for Frankfort?


Our focus has been on education about civic issues so that citizens can engage in our democratic republic. ​​​​

Together Frankfort folks may remember that we have worked closely with the League of Women Voters of Kentucky, educating folks about possible maps that would be "Fair Maps." During the virtual forum which we held with the League in October 2021, we learned many options for creating a redistricting maps which meet the criteria of fairness and equity.  


EVERY Together Frankfort contact is encouraged to support the League of Women Voters of Kentucky in their work to ensure fair maps for our citizens. The League has a specific networking group which you can join and stay on top of what is happening with redistriction. Please follow this discussion closely and contact your state representatives about your ideas on redistricting. Participate! Join and support the LWVKY!
