We are excited to announce a new service for Kentucky progressives, activists, and volunteers – the ForwardKY Calendar!

This calendar includes all sorts of events for progressives, including rallies and protests, meetings, workshops, and social events. Eventually we will include Congressional district location info, so you can filter to find events within driving distance.

Note that some of these events are political and partisan, while others are definitely non-partisan. Many of these events come from organizations in our Forward Kentucky Directory, which is rolling out soon.

If YOU have an event for the calendar, you can submit it using the button at the top of the calendar, OR you can send all the details to Webmaster@ForwardKY.com. If you have an image for your event, please include it; they add a lot to the calendar.

Our hope is that eventually the ForwardKY Calendar will be a significant resource for the entire state. Please share this link with others, and send us your events!
