We’re Empowering Kentuckians to Be the Voice for Kids

Kentucky citizens overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.

We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Kentucky in the News

Dreamers are Kentuckians in every way but on paper and it’s time to change that.

In June, Vice President Kamala Harris addressed a crowd of Guatemalans and told them “do not come” to the U.S. I was disappointed, but not surprised. Too many of our elected officials — Republican and Democrat alike — have a fundamental misunderstanding about immigration: that immigrants who come here undocumented are making an easy choice. For my family, and so many others, there was no choice, and it certainly wasn’t easy. If we hadn’t fled our native countries, we’d be dead.
