The KRLA Staff and Board
Addia Wuchner, well-known for her years in the Ky Legislature, brings a plethora of talents and experience to KRLA.
She is an unwavering pro-life, pro-family and pro-woman advocate who has championed the human rights of the unborn child and women’s right to know, the healthcare right to make a complete and informed decision before giving consent to abortion. She was the first woman in Ky to be appointed Chair of the House Standing Committee on Health and Family Services.
Her faith and mission-driven vision have taken her around the globe, at times to places few would venture. She was the founder and missions director for Project Wings Of Mercy, International Medical and Humanitarian Aid, completing nine missions to war-torn Bosnia and Croatia during the 1991-94 conflict.
