More protesting on Tuesday for disabled rights

More protesting on Tuesday for disabled rights


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - More demonstrations were held on Tuesday after protesters bombarded the Arkansas Health Care Association Headquarters.

On Monday, dozens gathered with a disability rights group refusing to give up the fight for their rights.

The group wants the ability to choose their support instead of being forced into nursing facilities and institutions.

Little Rock police were called to U.S. Representative Mike Ross' office on Tuesday afternoon and have made more arrests for disorderly conduct for people refusing to get out of the street.

Help the Red Cross prepare for emergencies by donating blood

Help the Red Cross prepare for emergencies by donating blood

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (RedCross) — Disasters can strike at any time, and the American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to help their communities prepare for emergencies by giving blood during National Preparedness Month.

The mission of the Red Cross is to help the public prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. During National Preparedness Month, the Red Cross reminds Americans to take simple steps to get ready for emergencies in their homes, workplaces and communities. One way to support this mission is to become a regular blood donor.

A stable blood supply is central to ensuring patient needs are met in emergencies. Blood can take up to three days to be tested, processed and made available for patients. It’s the blood already on the shelves that can help save lives when disaster strikes.
