The Arkansas Legislative Black Caucus will launch a series of town hall meetings in eight cities across the state beginning Thursday, June 1 in Fort Smith. The meetings are slated for member districts and will be held throughout June and July.

The town halls will focus on legislative issues related to the recently concluded regular and special sessions. All constituents, local leaders, media and members of the public are invited to attend.
