Our time is now. Act now!

The time has come to Kentucky to pass a law to prohibit terminations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

In 1966, Kentucky became the 1st state in the South to pass a civil rights law. The Commonwealth also became the first in the south to establish enforcement powers over civil rights violations on a state level. The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights becomes the state enforcement authority of the Act.

What happened to us? At what point did our great Commonwealth lose its leadership in the area of civil rights?

Take action!  Act now!
