Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (KFTC) is a grassroots community organization founded in 1981. Though statewide, KFTC has deep roots in eastern Kentucky where coal mining remains the dominant industry. KFTC is a multi-issue organization of working-class families, with a history of working for land reform and environmental justice.

Joe Szakos was one of the founding organizers.
