Welcome to the Arkansas Forward Party Community Page!

We Arkansans live under the state motto of Regnat Populus, “The People Rule.”  However, with the recent passage of state laws like Act 236 which hinders AR citizens’ constitutional right to direct democracy, and after witnessing the rushed and exclusionary passage of the broad, costly and severely impactful 145-page LEARNS Omnibus Education Reform Law, it feels a bit more like Regnat Politicians.

So what can we do?

The good news is that we don’t have to sit idly by and continue to watch our democracy regress.  Together with the guidance and resources provided by the National Forward Party, and through collaboration with other local and national pro-democracy activist groups, there are clear steps we can take now.  We can steer our democracy back on course while we simultaneously build up and organize a durable state party alternative that can effectively compete with the current two-party duopoly.

How do we do it?

Fortunately in Arkansas we still have the power to change our own state laws where needed when our representatives fail to act in good faith on our behalf.  Our state constitution provides us with two forms of direct democracy which are Citizen Initiatives and Referenda.  For the 2023-2024 election cycle, the Arkansas Forward Party is focused on supporting non-partisan democracy-improving ballot measure campaigns such as Ranked Choice Voting and fully Open, Nonpartisan Primaries to help bring more and better candidate competition to future election cycles, and to minimize legitimate concerns that the Arkansas Forward Party could later be a “Spoiler” for other like-minded candidates.
