The state legislature’s dual passage of two bills – one restricting access at the polls and another that removes a duty to retreat from Arkansas’ stand your ground bill – prompted Sen. Jim Hendren to note the extremism evident in today’s politics.

Dozens of Arkansans traveled to the state Capitol to speak about the potential for harm from the bills. Their voices were drowned out by lobbyists who pressure legislators with threats of a primary opponent or withheld funding.

Common Ground Arkansas is listening to Arkansans. Together, we can work toward common sense legislation in the Natural State.

There will be more to share on Common Ground Arkansas in the coming weeks. In the meantime, sign up for our mailing list or see how you can can help.
