Friendly Reminder: Join Us TOMORROW to stand up for the values of fairness, opportunity and justice





Dear Friend,

Join us THIS SATURDAY (12/3) in developing a strategy to stand up for the values of fairness, opportunity and justice. Now more than ever we need to stand and strategize together.

Children who depend on quality PUBLIC schools need you. Families who need economic opportunities and access to health care need you. Women who deserve equal pay and respect need you. Our state that squanders a fortune on an ineffective and discriminatory judicial system needs you. People across the state who are marginalized because they are poor, or because of the color of their skin or where they were born need you. Workers who deserve an honest wage and even the basic right to see their pay stubs need you. Arkansas's water and natural resources that are under assault need you.

The power of the Citizens First Congress has always rested in the ability of our membership to come together across regions and areas of interest to fight for positive reforms at the state legislature. We need you now more than ever to send a message to state lawmakers that we are united and standing together!

If you can not attend and still want to support our work, sign up for an individual membership and join us ( today and learn more about the ways you can partner with us to make Arkansas a better place to live. (

We look forward to meeting with you!
