I doubt there is a non-profit anywhere in the country
that gets more out of each dollar contributed.

ORDER A KRC T-SHIRT

By ordering a KRC T-Shirt, you provide valuable funding for the environmental defense and environmental advocacy work of KRC. Each shirt is $22.00 and shipping is $5.00 (quantitites of four or more shirts may have increased shipping, please allow 3-5 business days for shipping).

Our shirts are printed by Print My Threads, located in Flatwoods, Kentucky  (and they are amazing to work with) and made from 100% recycled material. By choosing to reclaim material, we save energy and resources equivalent to the conservation ofshaving 5.87 miles off your daily commute or going computerless for an entire workday.

The current shirt is available in a heathered navy and limited quantities are available. Shirts will be available until out of stock.

A new order will be place in summer 2020. Let us know what colors or additional merchandise you would like to see by email Amy Carpenter, KRC Office Manager, at amy@kyrc.org.

legal-assistance support

 

We are extremely thankful for the generosity of all of our members. 

In 2019, we also received support for legal-assistance programs from our local, legal institutions. 

Kentucky Bar Foundation 
The Kentucky Bar Foundation is the nonprofit, charitable arm of Kentucky’s legal community. This Foundation educates and support Kentuckians through grants, programs and other initiatives. Learn more by visiting their website.

Recently, the Kentucky Bar Foundation provided financial support for KRC to be able to enhance access to environmental legal services for low-income individuals and communities in Kentucky.

Louisville Bar Foundation
The Louisville Bar Foundation raises and distributes funds for the delivery of legal services to the poor and indigent; for law-related public education; and for improvement of the judiciary, the legal profession, and citizen access to the justice system. Learn more by visiting their website.

Fortunately, KRC was able to provide legal assistance to 21 Kentucky counties in 2019 thanks to the financial support of the Kentucky Bar Foundation and the Louisville Bar Foundation for services provided to low-income individuals and community groups on energy and environmental issues. 

VOICE 

by Trina Peiffer, written for the Kentucky Resources Council
November 3, 2017

Who would you want in the middle
of your controversy—
your town, forest, mountain,
your water supply,
mineral rights,
wild river,
your cave, neighborhood, farmland,

who would you want
when you can’t take the trees
to the courtroom with you
to state their case

and you can’t make the river talk
any more than it does, tippling the rocks,

when you can’t determine in dollars exactlythe value of clean air,
and it never will blow back
in its own defense.

Who would you want 
in defense of the voiceless, the unseen,
underrepresented, overlooked,
marginalized, undermined

and in defense of the beautiful
those delicate connectionsbetween waterways, & in soil
fortifying plants, & in the power
of trees growing and re-growing
under our single sun.

This council
is the legal face of the voiceless.
Wild nature 
stands behind its every brief, legal opinion, policy,
and protest.

This council
is fearless in the middle of controversy
where it stakes its place in the heart of Kentucky.
