A PROFILE OF IMMIGRANTS IN ARKANSAS
Did you know that Arkansas had the fourth fastest rate of immigrant
population growth from 2000 to 2010? Or that immigrants make significant economic
contributions to the state?
The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation recently released a new three-volume report,
A Profile of Immigrants in Arkansas, that analyzes key demographic trends
and the economic impact of
immigrants and the Marshallese population in Arkansas.
Making a Difference in Arkansas
At WRF, we focus our efforts on people and communities that
have the least wealth and opportunity. We use our resources to
understand the problems contributing to poverty in Arkansas and
develop long-term action plans to address the underlying issues.
Our Moving the Needle strategy is based on the belief that all
Arkansans fare better when no one is left behind and when
everyone shares in economic progress, quality education and
general community well-being. Moving the Needle is grounded
in the life and legacy of Winthrop Rockefeller.
