Together Frankfort invited the community to a screening of the movie, Dark Money, Wednesday, November 3, 6:30 PM in the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, Brown Forman Room, 100 W. Broadway, Frankfort, KY . Over 60 participants viewed the film and then engaged in a group discussion led by Richard Taylor.

  • The Movie: DARK MONEY examines one of the greatest present threats to American democracy: the influence of untraceable corporate money on our elections and elected officials. The film takes viewers to Montana—a frontline in the fight to preserve fair elections nationwide—to follow an intrepid local journalist working to expose the real-life impacts of the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Through this gripping story, DARK MONEY uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold. 

  • The Discussion: 

  • During 2017, Together Frankfort's first year as an organization, the leadership decided to conduct a year - long examination of dark money in politics. Click the links below to learn more, which included:

~  A meeting with Kentucky's 3rd District Congressman John Yarmuth, who has sponsored legislation to address the issue of dark money;

For those  interested in the future of civic life in Kentucky, we encourage you to support civic education in our public schools and universities.  One way to stay in touch with what's going on is through the Kentucky Civic Education Coalition (KCEC). 

The Coalition is building a non-partisan coalition of nonprofits, educators, business and community leaders, think tanks, universities, and other partners committed to preparing all students to be informed, engaged participants in civic life. If you support civic education in Kentucky, KCEC is one way to put that support into action!

To learn more about ​the vision and planned structure for KCEC, click here for their Facebook page with more info.

Just like our state motto--united we stand, divided we fall--by collaborating with the bluegrass’ leaders, educators, and advocates for civic learning, we can stand together and make Kentucky a national example of civics as a core component of every young person’s education.
