Join us on Mon.Aug. 17 from 6 PM- 8 PM at the Arkansas State Capitol for a visual demonstration of the continued & intentional endangering of Arkansas’ children, teachers, educators, parents, grandparents, families, schools,& communities by the State of Arkansas during the ongoing COVID 19 crisis.  By continuing to withhold economic resources from Arkansans, by continuing to plan for forced school reopenings in the face of CDC best practices, and by ignoring the impossibility of safe physical attendance in the classroom, Governor Hutchinson & the State of Arkansas are sacrificing the lives and well-being of our communities so that he can stand in front of the cameras and say that “Arkansas Is Open For Business”." We place education at the democratic center of this struggle that reaches every aspect of our lives.
