The Community Response Coalition of Kentucky (CRCKY) is a diverse interfaith and secular group from Central Kentucky working together to help provide community support to families negatively impacted by immigration enforcement.  Our members include Catholics, Episcopalians, Jews, Bahais, Presbyterians, local service organizations dedicated to helping immigrants, and larger organizations such as Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church, Ohavay Zion Synagogue, Planned Parenthood and ACLU Kentucky.  The strength of our union lies in the diversity of its members.

Our members deeply believe in the importance of supporting others in our community who have been affected by immigration enforcement through no fault of their own.  We are all united in our desire to support our neighbors as they grapple with how they can stay in the U.S.  The CRCKY is made up exclusively of volunteers working towards this goal.  This means that 100 % of donations made to the CRCKY go to help our immigrant neighbors.   We are proud of this fact and take joy in working together with other people and organizations to help our friends and neighbors.  

We recognize that the broad nature of this coalition means some of our members will hold different, and even at times conflicting, values and goals.  We believe the diversity of perspectives considerably enriches this group and gives it a unique perspective. Given the potential for lack of consensus between disparate groups, we agree that our support of the CRCKY in no way endorses the external activities of members in our group whose values may not align with our own, or that of the organization or religious group we represent.  Our commitment to working with other members is exclusively focused on helping the CRCKY carry out its activities and mandate.

Our History

We may come from different backgrounds, but we all share a similar value: we want to help those left behind after immigration enforcement has acted.   We can't just watch and not try to help our neighbors.
