The Kentucky Resources Council (KRC) is Kentucky's only environmental advocacy organization offering legal and strategic assistance without charge to individuals, community groups and local governments statewide. A nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, KRC accepts neither corporate nor government funding, and is supported solely by donations from individual and group members, individual donors, and charitable foundation grants.

KRC's mission is to protect Kentucky's natural resources and promote healthy communities by providing legal and technical guidance and assistance to individuals, communities, and organizations with environmental concerns.

Using an array of strategies and tools, including litigation, advocacy before state and federal legislatures and agencies, and public education, KRC seeks to protect Kentucky and its citizens from harm and to foster environmental responsibility on a wide range of issues:

Our proud heritage. The Kentucky Resources Council is successor to the Kentucky Rivers Coalition, which spearheaded successful fights to stop the Red River Dam and other Corps of Engineers “big dam” projects in the 1970's, and led the fight against oil shale development in rural Kentucky. Founded in 1982, KRC has been directed since 1984 by Tom FitzGerald, formerly staff attorney for the Appalachian Research and Defense Fund of Kentucky. “Fitz” is a nationally recognized legal expert on coal mining issues. KRC has developed a reputation over this past quarter-century as a diligent and effective voice for those who live “downhill, downwind and downstream” and who bear the brunt of environmental pollution and short-sighted natural resources and development decisions.

KRC's Board of Directors are representatives of various state conservation organizations and local community groups. KRC has over 600 individual and 57 organizational members from all across the Commonwealth, from Fulton to Harlan and Paducah to Pikeville.
