BLUEr Ozarks of Missouri and Arkansas

Distributed among the recipients below

The Ozark Mountain Region of Southern Missouri and Northern Arkansas is a large mostly rural area with limited economies dependent on small-scale agriculture, timber harvest, and tourism. With the exception of a few thriving population centers, like Northwest Arkansas and the Springfield, MO metro areas, unacceptable poverty rates are common throughout the region.

Although some counties do elect Democrats to local office, the region is deeply red, dominated by a strong predominance of elected Republican state legislators and federal representatives. Gun control, abortion law, gay marriage, and religious fundamentalism are hot issues used by Republicans to help maintain political control, while the region’s resident’s dire social needs and the area's lack of economic progress are largely left unattended.

The purpose of this page is to organize, in one convenient group, progressive democratic-leaning organizations, environmentally-friendly organizations, Democratic state legislative candidates, gubernatorial and executive candidates, and federal congressional candidates to gather and conduit funds in the hopes of bringing more awareness to the region's candidates and issues, possibly electing more Democrats to office in the region. More candidates will be added as they are announced. .
