Contact Your State Senator
Kentucky’s 15 children’s advocacy centers and 13 sexual violence resource centers still need your help to ask State Senators to support additional funding in the state budget. Your voice can help ensure all survivors, children, and families who need life-saving, direct services receive them. Visit the Lotus activism center for instructions to contact your State Senator.
