Disability Rights Arkansas is a private, nonprofit organization. We advocate for the civil rights of Arkansans with disabilities. Every U.S state and territory has a protection and advocacy organization, established by federal law. We are the designated protection and advocacy organization for the state of Arkansas.

For a comprehensive list of topics we cover, refer to our Resources page.

Please take a few minutes to read about using People First Language when writing about disability issues. For instance, statements like “people with disabilities” and “uses a wheelchair” are preferable to “the disabled” or “wheelchair bound.”
