Each year, Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance customers automatically pay a fee that enrolls them as members of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation, the company’s 501(c)4 lobbying arm. Each year they spend tens of thousands of dollars lobbying the Kentucky General Assembly.

I’m Freda Fairness, Freddy Farm Bureau‘s cousin! You probably know Freddy from years of him sittin’ at the entrance of the Kentucky State Fair greetin’ folks like you and me. He’s nice enough, but I had no idea the company he works for, Kentucky Farm Bureau, marginalizes and discriminates against people like me. Just read their policy booklet!
Follow me on social media–@FredaFairness & Freda–so we can spread the word about Freddy and the Farm Bureau. Also, don’t forget to contact your local Kentucky Farm Bureau office–whether you’re a member or not! Ask them why these policies exist and how you can change them!
