Lamar Allen

Kentucky House, District 56, KY

Lamar has 10 years of experience as an educator. In Kentucky, Lamar has taught grades 2 through 4 and has served in leadership capacities that impact kindergarten through fifth grade. His work has completely been in disenfranchised urban communities. This experience has led Lamar to continue his fight for children outside of the classroom. He decided to run for Kentucky’s House of Representatives to ensure the voices and needs of his students are heard. He is the first black candidate to ever run for Kentucky's House District 56 seat. If elected, he would also be the youngest in Kentucky's history. Lamar is a relentless advocate for the most marginalized in Kentucky and believes it's time for a progressive and swift change toward equity. He is fighting to strengthen education, expand healthcare, and dismantle systems of injustice.
