"In God We Trust"
The Arkansas Legislature originally adopted the National Motto "In God We Trust" Display Act in 2017, sponsored by Rep. Jim Dotson of Rogers, Arkansas. This act allows for the display of national motto posters in Arkansas public school classrooms and public buildings if made available for that purpose. In 2021, the Arkansas legislature updated the National Motto Act by passing ACT 410 of 2021 which allows national motto posters to be donated by private individuals to be displayed in public school classrooms, universities or any public buildings that are supported by taxpayer dollars in the state of Arkansas. If a public school is not already displaying the national motto according to ACT 410 and a donation of posters is made to the school according to the law, the school SHALL accept the donation and put the posters up on the walls in all classrooms in fulfillment of ACT 410.
We are helping with this effort by assisting the public to provide the posters for display. Through July of 2021 we have assisted various groups with the production, distribution, framing and display of over 21,750 U.S. national motto posters in public school classrooms and buildings in the states of Arkansas, Alabama, Kansas and Louisiana. Please use the contact form below if you would like to coordinate a specific supply of posters to be donated to your local public school, college, university or to a public building. We will reach out to you after we receive your message.
For a donation to AHHF to help cover our costs, we will help you get national motto posters for your project needs. Through special partner arrangements we have made, we can have 11 x 17 posters made with your own specific state flag and U.S. flag for just .50 cents each. We also have a special partnership with Hobby Lobby which allows us to get an 11 x 17 frame for this purpose for just $1.50 plus tax. Please contact us to discuss your specific order, shipping arrangements and frame delivery. Thank you for displaying the U.S. National Motto "In God We Trust".
We also have posters available for any
state by special order.
Please contact our office to discuss.
The American History & Heritage Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and informing the public about American history and heritage. Our organization is proud to be the private sponsor of the The Ten Commandments Monument that was installed on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol. We also look forward to assisting and supporting other states, counties, and cities that are committed to installing similar monuments in honor of the principles and beliefs that are the foundation of our nation. If you would like our assistance in having a Ten Commandments Monument or "In God We Trust" national motto monument installed, please contact us.
On April 8, 2015, the Arkansas General Assembly passed SB939 - The Ten Commandments Act and the Governor of Arkansas signed the bill into law becoming Act 1231.
The law states the "placing of a monument to the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol would help the people of the United States and of the State of Arkansas to know the Ten Commandments as the moral foundation of the law," and that the monument would be paid for by private donations.
Less than 24 hours after the Ten Commandments Monument was installed at the Arkansas State Capitol on June 27, 2017, a criminal destroyed the monument by driving over it with his vehicle in a premeditated act of violence with intent to destroy public property. The perpetrator was arrested and jailed awaiting trial - he was ultimately found to be mentally unfit to proceed with a trial and was released with psychiatric care. The American History & Heritage Foundation raised funds and arranged for a replacement monument to be finished as an exact replica of the first monument and reinstalled for the people of Arkansas - the replacement monument was installed and dedicated to the people of Arkansas on April 26, 2018.
