Except for Dr. King being ultimately murdered, Nelson Mandela’s experiences in his struggle against apartheid were identical to that of Dr. King.

    Taking a stand on smoking

    As leaders of major faith groups, we believe Kentucky’s elected leaders need to take urgent action to improve the health of our state. During the 2014 legislative session, our elected officials will be examining the smoke-free issue once again. Rarely is such an opportunity available to profoundly impact our communities.
