Organizers say that here in Kentucky, teacher pensions are under attack, municipal water supplies are poisoned, health care for low income families is restricted and the tax code is immoral as is the criminal justice system and funding for education.

This is just one of more than 30 protests scheduled at State Capitals across the country. The action is all leading up to one big mass march on Washington in June.

Each week the activists will focus on a different issue. This week is women, children and those with disabilities living in poverty.

The rally is scheduled for 2 pm in the rotunda.
