Arkansas Public Policy Panel is working at the local and state levels to build power and identify an agenda rooted in grassroots communities’ interests and priorities. APPP’s work centers on nine counties in south Arkansas and the Delta region where high poverty rural black communities are situated; they are also working in northwest Arkansas to build a constituency in Latino communities. A one year $30,000 grant in 2012 and in 2013 will enable the Arkansas Public Policy Panel to pursue local organizing in rural predominantly African American communities in Arkansas while also building a state wide coalition for educational equity.
