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 voting rights

Freedom For All

To live a happy, healthy life

Opportunity for All

Financial & educational security

Join the Fight for a Better Arkansas

We’re building a stronger Arkansas by focusing on the things that unite us instead of divide us. You help every time you share our content, sign a petition, contact a legislator, make a donation and most importantly - when you vote.
