Company Description
Since 1963, the Arkansas Public Policy Panel (the Panel) has worked to open up social, education and economic opportunity for all. We help community people organize, to grow as leaders and to influence policies and change at the local level. We focus on the following South AR low-income communities: Marvell, Monticello, Star City, Gould, Dumas, Magnolia, Strong, Huttig, Prescott, and Waldo. This project will continue our efforts to build infrastructure, leadership and programs that address disparities impacting low-income communities across a range of issues. We provide intensive organizing assistance to community members who historically have the highest poverty and greatest barriers to civic participation. The Panel supports a diverse coalition of these community groups, other nonprofit organizations and their allies. Together, they support each other and advocate together.
