Recognize Propaganda: About Those Anti-Choice Posters

Anti-choice posters have a long history. But they aren't particularly accurate, and they're intended to provoke a misleading emotional response.

Arkansas hasn't bought into the federal option to extend postpartum Medicaid coverage from 60 days to 12 months after birth. Sanders said she doesn't believe the state needs this policy yet, "but we do need to do a better job of transitioning people... to other coverage options."

Arkansas’s state motto is

"The People Rule"

But for too long, many of our state politicians have been operating in the shadows, prioritizing interests of the wealthy and powerful over interests of the people. They put partisanship and deep-pocket campaign donors ahead of us, the voters.

This is our state. We are fighting back.

For AR People

We fight for:

Democracy for All

Protect & expand our rights

Freedom For All

To live a happy, healthy life

Opportunity for All

Financial & educational security
