On July 24, 1963, President John F. Kennedy met with some participants in the Boys Nation Convention, and shook hands with the representative from Arkansas: sixteen-year-old Bill Clinton. Thirty years later, Clinton would find himself on the other side of that handshake, as President.

Center for Artistic Revolution needs you

fuckyeahsexeducation:

Center for Artisitic Revolution, CAR, is a 501 (c)(3)sponsored, statewide, grassroots community based organization.

CAR was founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2003 by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Queer Arkansans (LGBTQ) and their straight allies who believe that all people should have equitable access to fair treatment, a democratic political process, and economic and environmental justice.

CAR works with a holistic combination of progressive education, organizing skills, advocacy, and creative/cultural work in order to create a fair Arkansas that values all of its residents.

Our commitment to intersectional work means that CAR strives to build intentional bridges of understanding and collaboration between diverse communities, to dismantle the “isms” and the phobias that continue to disenfranchise, oppress, and exclude people. In this way we build the real relationships that allow us all move forward in the quest for the well being, fair treatment and equality for ALL Arkansans.

This is honestly one of the best organizations in Little Rock. They havethe only center for LGBT+ youth in our area.

With all that said, we did not generate as much as we had hoped to tide us over a bit of a rough patch. After 11 years, we find that we are in about as tight a spot as we have ever been in between incoming funding sources. We are still very much in need of the generosity of our friends. 

If you truly believe in CAR and wish to see our efforts continue including providing programs for LGBTQ and Ally youth, Safe Schools Initiative, “Add the Words” campaign, community education, etc. then please send a donation now. Whatever you can share. All donations are tax-deductible. To make a gift:

You may access our Paypal on our website, scroll to the bottom of the page.http://artisticrevolution.org/

Checks can be made out to CAR and mailed to P.O. Box 2300, North Little Rock, AR 72114

We are also able to accept credit cards over the phone or you can drop by the office. For more information 501-244-9690
