In the fall of 2013, I founded Heirs of Arkansas. a statewide grassroots campaign formed to promote passage of the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act in Arkansas. This law, which provides legal protections for those owning family land and for the surrounding communities, was passed unanimously in 2015. I gave a TedX talk on the topic later that year.
