At the beginning of each fiscal year, the Board of Directors adopts priorities based on feedback from individuals with disabilities, family members, advocates and professionals. The priorities adopted by the Board determine the activities for the fiscal year.

Our current priorities include:

People Gardening as a Community

Community Integration and Access

Disabled worker at an office


Arkansas State Capitol

Important Legislation



Public Policy Platform

Policy Platform

The priorities are directly related to the agency mission of vigorously advocating for and enforcing the legal rights of people with disabilities in Arkansas. The corresponding objectives are based on the type of work Disability Rights Arkansas is uniquely qualified to perform.

Please note: Due to limited resources, Disability Rights Arkansas reserves the right to limit cases for each priority and objective. We provide information and referral, direct representation, legal representation, and training and outreach, all at no cost to individuals with disabilities. Not all cases taken by Disability Rights Arkansas will become legal cases, as each case is evaluated on its merits and whether or not private counsel can be obtained.
