Karen Armstrong-Cummings, Together Frankfort Liaison 

What is a partner organization? 

Together Frankfort’s partner organizations are those with whom we have developed, formally or informally, close working relationships to achieve mutual goals. Together Frankfort works to facilitate local, regional, national, and international partnerships with those working to improve civic engagement. 

In 2018, Cary Sudduth, a member of Together Frankfort’s leadership team at that time, contacted numerous local organizations which share similar goals with Together Frankfort. After he sent letters to each organization, he arranged for organizational representatives to meet with the Together Frankfort Coordinating Team. 

We outlined ways in which we could work together as organizations. Many, if not most, of the local organizations listed below have built on the meetings which we held in 2018 & 2019.   A primary feature which identifies each of our partners is that these are the folks working to improve the democratic process in our community: 

  • Educating citizens about significant electoral issues, such as campaign finance or election reform; 
  • Conducting educational programs on issues which have marginalized citizens; and 
  • Addressing related community concerns, as requested, or as they arise in our community, state & nation. 

 "What does it mean to be a “Partner? For Your Organization, as a Partner, and for Together Frankfort” 

Partners help each other to achieve mutual goals. These partnerships are not legal in nature and imply no direct or indirect responsibility for proper organizational functioning and protocol. 

Our partners work with our organization to play many roles, among which are: 

➢ Sharing information about Together Frankfort’s events with their members through print materials or social media; in turn, Together Frankfort promotes our partner organizations events and activities.
➢ Encouraging their members to join Together Frankfort as individual members (there’s no membership fee. Just go to the website and fill out the form. We request a $5 donation but it’s not required.) In turn, we publicize membership drives and other organizational initiatives of our partners.
➢ Helping plan and/or conduct educational programs, such as recommending speakers, providing materials for in-person meetings, sharing costs for Zoom meetings or for facility rental fees.
➢ Sharing information about the Partner’s events in which Together Frankfort members may be interested - using social media, newspaper advertisements, our e-newsletter, writing emails to friends about our partners' events.
➢ Co-sponsoring events, meetings, or activities to share meeting planning, operation, management and follow-up.

➢ Writing social media posts or newspaper articles, together with a partner organization, about issues of mutual concern. 
➢ Celebrating the joy, value, and camaraderie of our diverse and engaged citizens working to improve our democracy. 

We express our utmost thanks to all our partners past years and look forward to continuing our collaboration in 2022!
