KRC's Environmental & Community Defense program provides free legal assistance and representation to those living downwind, downstream, and downhill of environmental problems. KRC provides individual representation to those who cannot afford or find representation on a range of environmental and energy-related issues. KRC also works programmatically through litigation, administrative advocacy, and legislative lobbying, to improve the quality of life for Kentuckians and to assure that those who pollute our air, land, or water are held to account.
The Kentucky Resources Council (KRC) is the only statewide organization in the Commonwealth providing legal, technical, and strategic assistance, without charge, to individuals and communities on environmental and energy issues. For 35 years, KRC has worked to hold government agencies and polluters accountable to the rules, and we provide legal representation at no cost to those who have nowhere else to turn when their lives and communities are impacted by environmental abuses.
