Our Mission

For AR People is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advances a responsible democracy in Arkansas by educating the public about issues that impact our daily lives and holding politicians accountable. We provide opportunities for Arkansans to speak up for their values - like transparency and accountability in state government - and build a stronger state that works for everyone.


For AR People is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of Arkansans restoring fairness, transparency and accountability to our state government.


We develop and share messages and action ideas to build a stronger state government that works for all Arkansans.


Every Arkansan is invited to help us reshape our state into a place where:

  • All voices are valued regardless of the net worth of the speaker
  • All workers have the basic protections they need to be productive and healthy
  • Our government works for the good of all of us


Gennie Diaz: Founding Director

Gennie is the Executive Director of For AR People where she works daily to empower Arkansans to take ownership of their government. A California transplant with deep roots in Arkansas,  she fell in love with the Ozarks—the same dwelling as her ancestors—and calls it home. She has been a proud Fayettevillian for 20 years.  [email protected]

Hannah Bruner: Content Director

Hannah Bruner was born in Fort Smith Arkansas and currently lives in Little Rock. She has over seven years of experience working in Arkansas politics, and has called all four congressional districts home, each special in its own way. She’s spent countless hours getting to know the people of our great state, and is bringing that knowledge with her as Content Director. In her free time, she waters her many potted plants, enjoys the natural beauty of Arkansas, and takes care of her bearded dragon, Todd. [email protected]



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.
