Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBT equality in Arkansas alongside state and local groups and lawmakers.

In an unprecedented effort to bring equality to Arkansas, HRC has announced Project One America, a comprehensive campaign to dramatically expand LGBT equality in the South through permanent campaigns in Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas.

Project One America is the very first campaign of its kind to work exclusively on LGBT equality in Arkansas—where there are no non-discrimination protections for LGBT people at the state or local level in employment, housing or public accommodations, and where the state’s constitution expressly prohibits marriage equality.

The marriage equality landscape is rapidly changing in Arkansas. On May 9, 2014, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza struck down Arkansas’s ban on same-sex marriages. On May 16, the state Supreme Court suspended marriages while state officials' appeal. During the week in which same-sex marriages were allowed, more than 450 Arkansas same-sex couples married.
