Beth Howard on How abortion is set to shape the Kentucky governor’s race

“Beth Howard is the Appalachian People’s Union Director of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), which focuses on engaging White and working-class voters around racial and economic justice issues. Howard said SURJ ran the largest field program opposing Amendment 2 in 2022 and successfully persuaded voters to cross party lines.

“I believe that in our work to turn out voters and engage them in this election and in all the conversations we’re going to have with Kentuckians, this is a really important point that we engage people around,” Howard said. “For us, I believe it has the opportunity to rally people out to vote for Andy Beshear.”
