Biography

Keturah Herron is a proud Kentuckian, youth and justice advocate and former policy strategist for the ACLU of Kentucky. Raised in Richmond, KY, they have worked in various locales across the Commonwealth and country serving young people. It’s through their stories, dreams and challenges that Keturah found a love for policy.

During Keturah’s time at ACLU, they worked with both local and state Republican and Democratic leaders to pass the following legislation: Breonna’s Law, banning no-knock warrants in the city of Louisville, passed unanimously in 17 days; school safety for children; the expungement of criminal records for non-violent offenders; and restricting warrants authorizing entry without notice; restoration of voting rights (as broadly as possible); and SB4 – a version of Breonna’s Law creating limits on no-knock warrants across the Commonwealth.

Community-centered, they believe the people are the backbone of a thriving community. Their job is to work for the people, designing policies that will help all of us rise. While serving in the House, they are committed to working on voter rights/restoration, violence prevention/child abuse, increasing the minimum wage, criminal justice reform and education/workforce issues. These are big goals; however, Keturah is a visionary with a proven track record of getting things done. They are a firm believer that by working together in the spirit of collaboration, we can help build a better Kentucky.
