Rodney Govens Believes the U.S. Can Actually Do Better… a LOT Better.
In Episode 2, Rodney gets asked about a bunch of current events and policy topics, and as usual he answers with candor and #realtalk:
— Arkansas’ #Infrastructure needs more attention (and where)
— What Arkansas’ sitting Congress members don’t want the public to understand about the #Immigration crisis
— Why the federal government is failing #k12 public schools in protecting #studentdata #cybersecurity
And a whole lot more.

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s day 2 of #ChangeWeek and I wanted to share a Valentine’s wish of mine. 
As a former foster kid and court appointed special advocate (CASA), I’ve seen the pitfalls of the foster care program first hand. My wish, and something I plan to help with, is increased funding for foster children. I also want to educate people on becoming a CASA.  CASA advocacy is extremely helpful to these kids because the advocates don’t change. A kid sees this person fighting for them, and they know that someone has their back. That’s something I wish I had when I was a foster kid. Stay tuned for my first podcast episode to learn more about CASA advocacy. 
Visit https://goodchange.app/donate/rodneyforar and consider donating your digital spare change to my campaign. 
Thanks again,
