JOIN THE PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN
To change the political landscape for our communities, we’re relying on YOU – THE PEOPLE! Together, we can create a movement to effect lasting change in our communities, in the Commonwealth, and across the country. The existing structure of TPC is hard at work for you locally, throughout Kentucky, and in Washington, D.C., building relationships with elected officials, organizations whose purpose and mission align with our interests, and with key stakeholders in the community. We work to grow our influence in these conversations, and by adding your name to our ranks, you help further our effort to be the unified voice of The People.
Want to become a member of The People’s Campaign? We’d love for you to join us.

Who Can Join?
Quite simply…. anyone. There are no criteria for becoming a member of The People’s Campaign. But we are looking or people who care…. about their community, about their child’s education, about ensuring everyone has access to affordable healthcare, about adding their collective voice to our message.
We want our fight for social justice and political activism to keep spreading, bringing in new voices, new perspectives, and new levels of commitment. We are building relationships in the community and in government, and we will use those relationships to speak up on behalf of THE PEOPLE.
If you or someone you know have a demonstrated interest in social justice, government affairs, or the political process, let us know. We want to find people who are well-connected to networks of people that we can engage further, and we want to find people who, for too long, have stood alone, and we want to stand up with you. We need those who want to learn more about the political process, those who want to help raise money to give us the resources we need to move forward. Finally, we want those of you who are especially informed on key issues like criminal justice, education, healthcare, immigration, and the economy, to help spread knowledge throughout the community.
TPC needs your support to ensure that our collective voice is heard.
By adding your voice to the movement, you can help us influence our state and local elected officials about the issues that are too often overlooked. Take a moment to review our different membership levels and find one that best reflects your desire and ability to get connected!
No contribution is too small.
As a political action committee, we can pool together the resources of all our members – meaning that any contribution you can make will help further the objectives of TPC.
Everyone has a role.
All TPC members will receive our monthly newsletter, and invitations to all TPC community events. All members can help spread our message by sharing our content on social media, and recruiting at least two new members each year. All members are encouraged to attend TPC events to stay updated on our efforts.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION MATTERS
Every dollar we receive helps to support one of the following essential elements of our work:
Advocating for Our Legislative Agenda
- As we build relationships with key government stakeholders, we commit to advocating for their support of our issues, for their understanding of the impact of their work on THE PEOPLE, and for them to vote on the right side of each piece of legislation before them.
Promoting Strong Candidates for Public Office
- During each election cycle, our Political Action Committee will survey the roster of candidates, and potentially make contributions to individual who have shown leadership in fighting for the issues central to The People’s Campaign.
Hosting Meetups, Conferences and Community Events
- Our strategy of growing our influence only works if we are standing up on behalf of THE PEOPLE. To grow that influence, we want to build grassroots support through regular events to meet new people, to invite the community into our efforts, and to allow the feedback of the community to shape our agenda. We will continue to host regular events (brunches, meetups, receptions, conferences, etc.) to spread our message.
Keeping the Lights On
- As with any organization of this size, we maintain regular administrative costs. Your financial support helps offset the costs of printing/copying, website fees, food, vendor/payments, promotional materials, and much more.
NOTE: Federal law mandates that PAC contributions must come from personal funds – corporate contributions are strictly voluntary and are not a condition to membership to The People’s Campaign.
