What is the Groundswell?

The Groundswell Initiative is all about communities responding to the unique needs of students and families locally, to realize better outcomes in education – early childhood through postsecondary.

Groundswell members are the boots on the ground in a campaign to realize a Big, Bold Future for Kentucky – with education at the core.

Real, sustainable change happens locally – one child, one family, one neighborhood, one community at a time.

At the Prichard Committee, we commit to supporting you as a Groundswell member by sharing rich and important information with you that helps you act locally. We also commit to helping tell your story of local commitment and progress. Together, we hope to inspire others to join us, building a Groundswell for a Big, Bold Future.

We hope you’ll join Kentuckians across the Commonwealth as, together, we build a Groundswell.
