On Thursday, December 14th, Kate Miller will speak to the Knox County Democrat Woman’s Club at Union College Student Center, Heritage Conference Room at 7:00 pm. Kate joined the ACLU of Kentucky as Program Associate in 2008 and currently serves as the organization’s Advocacy Director. She is the ACLU of Kentucky’s chief lobbyist in the Kentucky General Assembly.
Her primary focus is on legislation related to immigrants’ rights, the First Amendment, Fairness for LGBT Kentuckians, justice reform and reproductive rights among other civil liberties. As part of her work on justice reform, she has worked with allies to establish the Kentucky Smart on Crime, a broad-based coalition working for common sense justice reforms that include the Catholic Conference of Kentucky, Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Kentucky Center for Economic Policy, among others.
Kate is privileged to visit the Knox County Democratic Women’s club for their December 14th meeting to provide a preview of the 2018 legislative session. For this meeting, Kate will focus on the rights of women in the Commonwealth. The ACLU of Kentucky is committed to defending the rights of Kentuckians to access abortion care and is also working with allies to pass the pregnant worker’s bill that provides modest accommodations to pregnant Kentuckians. The ACLU’s work on justice reform is also deeply connected to the rights of women since Kentuckians incarcerate women at the 5th highest rate in the nation.
