Special Guest Speaker

We are honored to feature amazing LGBTQ+ leaders at our Love is Love event.

Rep. Keturah Herron (KY)

Keturah Herron is a youth and justice advocate, former policy strategist, and the first openly LGBTQ+ person elected to the Kentucky House of Representatives. She was raised by a single mom in Kentucky and is a proud product of our public schools.

Keturah grew up immersed in sports and went to the University of Louisville for sports administration, and later earned a Master’s Degree in Corrections and Juvenile Justice from Eastern Kentucky University. She began work running sports programs for kids in the foster care system and the juvenile justice system, and learned she had a passion for working with and helping young people. It’s what has motivated her for her entire life. Later, when her cousin was incarcerated, Keturah took guardianship of her two minor sons, which gave her a deeper understanding of the effects of the criminal justice system on Kentucky families.

Keturah has taken this experience and made a career of working for Kentucky families and youth, managing educational programs for kids in foster care and juvenile justice facilities, and serving as a case manager for justice-impacted families. Keturah also served as a policy strategist for the ACLU of Kentucky, and is now a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives.

Before being elected to office, Keturah crafted public policy to make Louisville and Kentucky safer for everyone. After the tragic killing of Breonna Taylor at the hands of Louisville police, Keturah worked to pass Breonna’s Law—banning no-knock warrants—through the Louisville Metro Council in just 17 days. Less than a year later, she played a pivotal role in putting together a bipartisan coalition to pass a statewide ban on no-knock warrants in the General Assembly.
