This is our best chance to stop the Stand Your Ground bill from becoming Arkansas law. The bill passed on the Senate floor on Tuesday afternoon. It now heads to the House Judiciary Committee — where there is a good opportunity to stop the bill from advancing any further. We need your help to contact the right lawmakers on the committee.

SB24 ultimately passed out of the Senate. It now heads to the House Judiciary Committee where Democrats and Republicans of conscience stand a good chance at stopping the bill. That is, if we do the work to contact them and ask them to put the safety of our loved ones first by voting NO on Stand Your Ground.
