Initiated Act 1, which Arkansas voters will decide on this November, would prohibit unmarried co-habitating couples from adopting or fostering children. Although this act is intended as an attack on the LGBT community, it also would prevent unmarried opposite-sex couples from adopting or fostering.
Act 1 has not received a lot of national attention. If it passes, right-wing groups across the country may try to replicate its success in other states. For additional information, visit www.arkansasfamiliesfirst.org.
