Come meet the folks who put the “We” in “We the People”!

As part of Constitution Weekend, we’re transforming the Garrison Lobby into a lively common room for the community, where you’ll be able to meet non-partisan, civic organizations serving the state of Arkansas such as Arkansas United, Legal Aid of Arkansas, Hispanic Women’s Organization of Arkansas, Arkansas Alliance for Disability Advocacy, and more. Come learn about their work, get to know the people supporting communities across Arkansas, and find ways to get involved right where you are.

Free, no tickets required. Drop by anytime.
