Established in 2001, this coalition seeks to bring together and strengthen the voices of the growing number of Kentuckians (874,000-plus) who are identified as having a disability which interferes with activities of daily living. The 874K Disabilities Coalitions is comprised of organizations representing individuals with disabilities, their family members, advocates, providers and concerned citizens. The advocacy events sponsored by 874K are held in Frankfort during the legislative session with the goal of giving individuals affected by disabilities the opportunity to meet the Governor and key Cabinet officials, their state legislators and staff, and the media. Typical attendance is between 700 and 1,000 individuals from all parts of Kentucky. Sponsorship opportunities for these advocacy events are offered to organizations wishing to contribute to support 874K’s mission and vision for full inclusion of all individuals with disabilities.
On February 17, 2021 from 12:30pm-2:00pm, we are holding a VIRTUAL 874K Disabilities Coalition Rally.
The success of past rallies has always been the personal stories we've received from Kentuckians living with a disability. This year, we'd like each of you to submit a short video answering some specific questions about how the State of Kentucky is serving people like you.
Parents, how are services helping your children? You can submit a video as well.
