“Our community will be strengthened. It will become stronger, more robust, more vibrant and dynamic, both economically and socially, as cultural and racial diversity promotes and enhances the exchange of ideas.”    ~ Michael R. Twyman, Director

Our Vision
To make Arkansas the best state in the country for promoting and celebrating racial and ethnic diversity. We strive to achieve this vision through the following set of ideals:

Inquire · Reveal · Empower
Inquire – ask the tough questions which may make some uncomfortable but are necessary for understanding the root causes of racial inequities.

Reveal– expose the truth and bring attention to the problem of racism in a historical and contemporary context.

Empower– use solid research and data to inform decision making and formulate public policy that will achieve more equitable outcomes.
