What is the legislative session?

Kentucky's Constitution requires the General Assembly to meet in Frankfort every year on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January. In even-numbered years there are not more than 60 legislative days. The 2022 legislative session began on January 4, 2022, and ends on March 31, 2022.

Our team is on the ground in Frankfort during the legislative session almost every day. We connect people directly affected by different issues to their elected officials. This helps lawmakers learn about how their actions directly affect Kentuckians. We work with lawmakers to protect and expand the civil rights and liberties of all Kentuckians by supporting, altering, or defeating legislation that would threaten those civil liberties.

What is the General Assembly?

The General Assembly is Kentucky's legislature. This branch of government makes laws. It is made of the House of Representatives and a Senate. Each bill that becomes law must be approved by both chambers. Kentucky has a part-time citizen legislature with members from diverse backgrounds and communities.  All 138 members serve year-round as legislators, representing constituents, helping them solve problems, and studying new ideas.

LGBTQ Fairness – HB11, HB15

Fairness would protect LGBTQ Kentuckians from discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodation. A majority of Kentuckians become protected by local ordinances in 2021. It's time to extend this to all people, no matter where they live.

Banning Conversion Therapy – HB12

No child should be subjected to the dangerous and torturous practice of "conversion therapy." This legislation gained a record number of co-sponsors from both parties in 2021. Some towns have passed bans, and now it's time to protect all Kentucky children from this torturous and debunked practice.
