Thank Your Legislators for Supporting HB 1

Every child deserves a family, and House Bill 1 upholds that ideal by strengthening supports to help keep families together safely and, when that’s not possible, addressing timelines for adoption cases so that children can more quickly move toward finding a permanent family. HB 1 also includes a number of changes that evaluate and improve the performance of programs serving kids and families and help ensure decisions prioritize the best interest of the child. HB 1, a Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children priority bill sponsored by Representatives David Meade and Joni Jenkins, has passed the Kentucky House and Senate and is now off to the Governor’s desk.

Thank your state Senator and Representative for supporting HB 1 to keep Kentucky kids safe and improve how the commonwealth responds to child abuse and supports families.

Kids win when their best interests are prioritized, and House Bill 527 does just that by promoting the educational stability of children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect by allowing them to remain in the school where they were most recently enrolled or, when that is not in their best interest, ensuring a seamless transition to their new school. HB 527, a Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children priority bill sponsored by Representative Steve Riley and championed by Senator Dan Seum, has passed the Kentucky Senate and House and is now off to the Governor’s desk.

Thank your state Senator and Representative for supporting HB 527 to promote the educational stability of children who’ve experienced abuse or neglect.

It also prohibits the shackling of pregnant inmates during labor and delivery. SB 133, a Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children priority bill sponsored by Senators Julie Raque Adams, Whitney Westerfield, and Alice Forgy Kerr, has passed the Kentucky Senate and House and is now off to the Governor’s desk.

Thank your state Senator and Representative for supporting SB 133 to improve the outcomes of pregnant inmates and their babies.
