Non-profit works to teach community their rights

Non-profit works to teach community their rights


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Lewis-Burnett Employment Finders, Inc., a non-profit organization, is looking to reverse the cycle of negative outcomes through run-ins with law enforcement.

The non-profit, along with county judges and local attorneys met with community members at the Willie Hinton Neighborhood Center to help people learn about the rights they have before, during and after contact with law enforcement.

"You know so many individuals [are] out there that don't know that they can vote or get their voting rights back because they have been to prison," said Darlene Lewis. "And, judges had so much information on how the individual could get their rights back."

This attempt to heighten voter awareness came in the wake of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. The community there is predominantly minorities, but police and elected leaders are mostly white.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Fans here in central Arkansas turning out in big numbers to start the season.

A big crowd showed at the Buffalo Wild Wings in west Little Rock, and they had plenty to get excited about through the first half. Fans are ready to give Coach Bret Bielema the benefit of the doubt based on how the team played today.

"You kinda wanna see the strengths we have, and we're kind of seeing that. We have a good defensive line and running backs are strong, so we love to come out and see the first game for sure," said Arkansas fan Toby Stephens.

The fans are finding some silver linings in the Hogs first game.
