This week we welcomed Rebecca Blankenship, the first openly trans elected official in Kentucky, to the show. She told us about her experiences seeing the legislature move anti-trans legislation this year, her thoughts about the future of trans rights in Kentucky, plus the various other things she’s doing to organize for progress in Kentucky.
Robert talked early in the show about Kentucky’s Supreme Court opting to leave the abortion ban in place while the merits of the case are considered, and Jazmin provided updates about how the legislature is moving on anti-trans legislation and on juvenile justice legislation.
Rebecca also asked us to share that Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky has a rally in the capitol rotunda on March 2 at noon. Come if you can!
