A small group of protesters gathered outside Governor Asa Hutchinson's home in Rogers on Wednesday evening.

With the CDC moratorium on eviction set to expire Dec. 31, activists gathered at the governor's mansion in Little Rock and the governor's home in Rogers this week to demand action from the state in the form a state moratorium and financial assistance to renters.
