The 2022 legislative session starts in just 6 weeks – the time at which many Kentucky politicians want to ban abortion care and before many people know they're pregnant. Join us for 6 weeks of actions to help us fend off these unconstitutional and dangerous attacks on abortion care.
Follow @ACLUofKY on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to participate each week.
Week 1: A Personal Look – video from ACLU-KY Policy Strategist Jackie McGranahan (December 1)

Week 2: Meet other advocates and see how you can get involved (December 6)
The Kentucky General Assembly is the legislative branch in Kentucky and is made up of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The General Assembly meets at the beginning of every year. Many lawmakers say they are influenced by meetings and conversations they have with the people they represent. Join ACLU-KY Campaign Coordinator Heather Ayer along with other supporters of reproductive freedom on Monday, December 6, 2021, to chat about why we support abortion access in Kentucky, brainstorm ideas for actions during the 2022 legislative session, and create a stronger community of advocates.

Join ACLU-KY Campaign Coordinator Heather Ayer on December 13, 2021, to learn about meeting with lawmakers during the 2022 legislative session. Every year, we help Kentuckians connect with lawmakers so they can learn how their decisions affect our lives.
