HRC Arkansas Celebrates Pro-Equality Businesses

by HRC staff May 31, 2016


Post submitted by James K Rector, HRC Arkansas Field Organizer

Last week, HRC Arkansas joined thousands of people in Fayetteville, Arkansas, for the Sixth Annual Block Street Block Party presented by the Block Street Business Association. The purpose of the association is to help promote locally owned and independent businesses on Block Avenue. Many of the businesses are proud signatories of HRC Arkansas’ Equality Is Our Business Pledge.

The Equality Is Our Business Pledge is a concerted effort by businesses and individuals to advance workplace equality and equal treatment in housing and public accommodations for LGBT and their allies.  The business community and like-minded individuals understand that if we want to compete for top talent, we must have diverse and inclusive workplaces.

HRC Arkansas volunteers tabled at this event, engaging with members of the community and educating them about HRC. They signed up new supporters and members to help expand and connect the LGBT and allied community in The Natural State.

The goal of Equality Is Our Business Pledge is simple: Encourage businesses and organizations to stand up for diversity.  Businesses and organizations of all sizes who sign the Equality Is Our Business Pledge publicly join thousands of other businesses and organizations that support workplace equality and equal treatment in housing and public accommodations.
