“While Arkansas is full of welcoming and kind people, we have work to do so that all members of our community feel valued, included, and capable of success. When we all thrive, we thrive together. I have hope for our state and am also committed to the task at hand and the urgency it requires.”

I love working for JCA because they operate with fidelity in the social justice and DEI space. It’s extremely comforting to work with an organization whose values align with my own. These are my co-conspirators for justice, and I love the “good trouble” we get into together.

“A better world and existence is what most of us want from childhood to adulthood. Growing up in College Station Arkansas, I’ve long understood the conflicts of race, place, and community disinvestment.  I strongly believe in liberation and justice for all — and not just for some — and the joining together of our collective power to enact positive and productive change in our lives. I’m so excited to be a partner in this movement toward peace and equity!”

“I’m so grateful to serve with JCA because of their leadership’s commitment to courageously and humbly taking on the root causes of injustice and oppression, no matter how complex and messy. I love that our culture is just as much about holding ourselves accountable for doing this important work as it is in building our partners’ capacity to lead inclusively and equitably for all of Arkansas.”
