The United 874K Coalition
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.
