PRONOUNS

Jennifer Clay-Tucker has been on the board of CRCKY since its creation.   She has an M.A. in Communication from the University of Kentucky, where she researched the intersection of media representation and social justice.  Today, she serves as a Regional Field Organizer with Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates in Central Kentucky. 

 

Core to her values as an organizer is the belief that we have to center the experiences of people most impacted by attacks on Reproductive Freedom.  It is this belief that led her to join her colleagues in forming CRCKY.  Immigrant communities in Central Kentucky face countless barriers when trying to access healthcare, and this struggle has only been worsened by recent crises including the Covid-19 pandemic. She is grateful to have the opportunity to work alongside her fellow board members and incredible CRCKY volunteers to support immigrant families in our community.
