The 2009 Kentucky Legislative Session is officially over.
As Kentucky Equality Federation predicted, Senate Bill 68 died before the recess.
The Great Hall in the Kentucky Capitol (pictured) is finally empty of anti-equality lawmakers, who will not be back in full force until the 2010 Legislative Session (unless serving on an Interim Committees).
Though we can celebrate for now, we must be prepared for similar legislation to be filed next year. Remember, the 2010 Legislative Session (which begins in January) will be a long session.
What can you do to help?
One of the most important things you can do is sign-up for email alerts. Though equality is important to all of us, we also realize you have a million other things to do other than read emails from us several times per week; as a result, kyLGBT.org is very selective about the emails sent from this site.
After signing-up for email alerts, you may also:
- Sign-up to receive our official press releases.
- Sign-up to receive posts from the United We Stand blog.
- Follow us, or friend us on Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, and YouTube!
Kentucky Equality Federation and Marriage Equality Kentucky are still looking for Outreach Directors to represent members of the LGBTI community (Black, Transgender, Intersex, Immigration, Asian, Seniors, Medical, Faith, and LGBTI Parents), that too often have not been included, either in positions of leadership or in public education.
