ArkDems promote the American Jobs Plan

Arkansas Democrats are working overtime to get our message out to the people of Arkansas.

Democratic officials from across East Arkansas are making it clear that the I-40 bridge disaster is a wake up call that Arkansas’s crumbling infrastructure can no longer be ignored. Arkansas Democrats held an emergency press conference in West Memphis following news of the bridge’s sudden  shutdown, commanding the attention of the state’s broadcast outlets and putting Republicans on the defense for opposing President Biden’s American Jobs Plan to rebuild our infrastructure.

We have a million and a half people driving over what our department of transportation deems structurally deficient roads and bridges every day.” DPA Chair Michael John Gray

Senate Minority Leader Keith Ingram, West Memphis’s Representative Deborah Ferguson, and Marianna’s Rep. Reginald Murdock joined Chairman Michael John Gray to send a clear message to Congressman Rick Crawford and Governor Asa Hutchinson. Arkansans need safe roads and bridges, and we need to pass the American Jobs Plan now. The problem on I-40 is a risk in nearly every county of this state. Local leaders like West Memphis Mayor Marco McClendon say  bridge closures are costing his city and our state time and money.

Arkansas’s economic prosperity is tied to our roads and bridges. Congressman Crawford and others have failed to put our prosperity first. Let’s make sure we are ready to hold them accountable for their roadblocks in 2022.

Celebrating Juneteenth

June 19 is a day to observe and take pride in the end of slavery and liberation of African Americans.

The first Juneteenth was celebrated in 1866 by newly freed Black people. It marks the day when the last group of enslaved people learned about the Emancipation proclamation.

As we recognize Juneteenth, we also renew the call for the promise of freedom.

County Parties Lead The Fight


Voters deserve a choice at the ballot box. That’s why Arkansas Democrats are hard at work building the bench for 2022 and beyond.

Our filing fees to state offices have been dramatically reduced as part of our committment to making our Party a more inclusive and democratic space.

The new filing fee schedule gives County Party Chairs and Executive Committee members an especially important role this election. Their work to help find and support candidates in areas held by Republicans could mean a zero dollar filling fee for their area. This is good news for rural Arkansas ballots.

Recruiting for 2022 starts today.Let’s work to encourage fellow Arkansas Democrats to step up and run.

It’s imperative that County Party and State Committee leaders help identify the best people to serve their communities well, so that state party staff can effectively launch a recruitment effort.

We are on our way, but much work remains to be done.

Thank you to all who are pushing forward, seeking out candidates, and helping us build a robust and communica- tive candidate recruitment process in Arkansas.

Email nathan@arkdems.org if you are a County Party Chair or Arkansas Democrat with questions about this process.

Memorial Day

Commemorating Memorial Day

One of the first Memorial Day commemorations was organized in 1865, put together by recently liberated African American prisoners of war. In 1868, General-In-Chief of a Union veteran’s group declared that Memorial Day would be celebrated in May, and it became a federal holiday in 1971.

Our freedoms and rights as Americans were not won easily. 

On Memorial Day, as a nation, we consider the consequences of violence both at home and internationally. Honoring our veterans and active service members encourages us to recommit ourselves to the pursuit of a more peaceful tomorrow. Today, we remember the sacrifice of those who have bravely stood to protect the idea of America and fight for our future— and most importantly, we say thank you.
