For 35 years, the Kentucky Resources Council has been a trusted source of legal representation, advice, and assistance to individuals, communities, and local governments on a wide range of environmental and energy issues.  Accepting no corporate or government money, and providing legal assistance without charge, KRC relies on its members and supporters to enable us to provide unflinching advocacy for those who live "downhill, downwind, and downstream." 

Join with us today in advancing our shared values of environmental justice and protection.



Since 1984, KRC has been a trusted resource for comprehensive analysis of energy and environmental issues for citizens, government officials, and non-profit organizations.


We work to ensure individuals and communities impacted by environmental decisions have a voice in the policy-making process at all levels of government, and that values more durable than short-term profit guide public policy.


We believe every Kentuckian has the right to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities. We use the power of the law to secure and advance these essential rights.
