Is Forward Kentucky valuable to you? Do you rely on us for a objective news, as well as a progressive voice on issues facing Kentucky? Do you enjoy our writers, photographers, and cartoonists?

Then you need to support our work by becoming a paying member. And there’s no better time than during our February New Member Month!

Once a quarter we do a membership drive to increase our financial foundation. After being in business over four years, we are finally beginning to break even. BUT, more members would mean being able to expand our work, including reporting more and digging deeper: more original stories, more backgrounders, more investigative work, and more reach into the state.

And remember – members do not hit the paywall! Every membership level has access to ALL our content, plus more benefits like fewer ads or NO ads.

So, make the decision. If you find what we do valuable, then click the link below and become a member. The Basic level starts at $3 a month (even less if you pay annually), which is about one cup of coffee a month. You can afford this! And we need your support. Do it now, while you are reading this! Become a member today!

Yes, I want to support what I find valuable.

  1. Yeah. There are some articles people can criticise, which is normal. Like me with Joe Biden & the Democratic Party! But we should look at what Biden is doing Inside & what he’s Considering; like for example…
    Nancy Cook reported that the White House Senior Economists, Heather Boushey & David Kamin are privately expressing reservations about the scope of the Stimulus Payments:

    That would be something to call out if he decides to narrow it down more than what he promised originally, $2,000 Stimulus Checks! But were cut down to $1,400 to add up the $600 the people already got, which Georgian Voters do feel betrayed after that:

    So I think we can improve by just calling out the Politicians from of both Parties & holding Accountability.

  2. Hi – I have not been getting ANY newsletters, updates or anything from you for several weeks. And it’s not in my spam folder. You list me as active and subscribed to several services which I used to get regularly, but they all suddenly stopped. I miss you!
