Philanthropy, culture, the arts — we have a variety of pursuits when it comes to what we cover on the pages of Little Rock Soirée, and it's no secret one of those pursuits is to uplift and empower women making positive changes in their communities.

This month, however, we're bringing to life a concept that's been on our drawing board for years: a men's issue. From civil rights to fashion to power couples, this edition shares the spotlight with a handful of local men shaping our city for the better.

Here's how you can help.
