Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold.
