Northwest Arkansas is growing rapidly. Job growth, a strong local economy, and a high quality of life are just a few of the many reasons the region continues to be recognized as one of the top places to live in the nation. The demographic makeup of Northwest Arkansas, including race, age, income, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and many other facets of the community, is changing as well. This brings both opportunities and challenges for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and the Chamber’s role as a catalyst for action and positive change has never been more important.

Governor, Area Legislators Working on Hate Crime Bill - Exploring the Need for Hate Crime Legislation in the State of Arkansas
Governor Asa Hutchinson has expressed to the members of the Arkansas General Assembly that he would like to pass a Hate Crimes Bill. Arkansas is one of a few states left without a hate crime law (Wyoming, South Carolina) that enhances criminal penalties for targeting a victim because of that person’s attributes or situation. This bill is very similar to recently passed legislation in Utah and Georgia. A Special Session to pass this bill is the goal. However, if a Special Session is not called this year, the Governor has expressed that he wants to address this issue in the regular legislative session which begins in January.
