About WRF

With a legacy of more than 50 years devoted to the prosperity and growth in Arkansas, we know that together, we can create an Arkansas that works for everyone.

Governor Winthrop Rockefeller

Winthrop Rockefeller’s tenure as governor of Arkansas in the late 60s marked a turning point in the state’s journey toward equity. As governor, he implemented the first minimum-wage act in Arkansas, successfully integrated the state’s schools, tackled sweeping reforms in the prison system, and elevated Black Arkansans to positions of influence within state government.
