Place-taker for potential Together Frankfort meeting.


Partner's Event


Thursday, January 5, 2023


Kentucky's Voting Rights Coalition will meet, 3pm – 4:30pm ET, to weigh in on what kind of bill the Coalition wants to support in the '23 legislative session to restore voting rights of Kentuckians with felonies in their past. Together Frankfort (TF), a member of the Coalition, is  -- in need of a volunteer to represent us. The role would involve attending the meetings (zoom & in person), letting others know about TF's upcoming meetings, advising the TF Coordinators when there's:

  • A request to sign on to a letter/petition;
  • Proposed legislation which Together Frankfort, as a Coalition Member, is being asked to support;
  • Opportunities to promote Together Frankfort's events, programs, activities to others in the Coalition. 

Please contact Barbara Hadley Smith (click her name to email) about your interest.

​​​​Kentucky Voting Rights Coalition 


Together Frankfort has been a member of the Kentucky Voting Rights Coalition since its inception. The coalition is open to all organizations and if you are interested in participating in any way, please check out the website link here.


In most states, voting rights are respected after someone completes their sentence, if they were ever denied. Kentucky is one of only two states that permanently take the right to vote from everyone with a felony in their past, unless they can navigate the complicated process to get a pardon from the Governor, or go through an expensive process of having their record expunged for a limited number of Class D felons.


312,00 people in our state can't vote because of these laws – that's about 1 in 11 voting age Kentuckians. Kentucky also has the nation's highest rate of Black voter disenfranchisement. One in 4 Black Kentuckians cannot vote due to the combination of over-policing in communities of color and our voter disenfranchisement laws.

Many of the issues Kentuckians face are impacted by who is able to vote. Disenfranchisement harms families by discouraging civic participation and decreases the political power of entire communities. 
Contact Dave Newton with Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, for more information about the Kentucky Voting Rights Coalition. Let him know if you or your organization would like to be involved with the coalition.
