YBF POLITICS: It's A Numbers Game! Ronetta Francis On How To Still Protect Roe v. Wade, Black Women Being Cheat Code Candidates, Flipping AR's State Senate Blue

The YBF Podcast

You could have amazing progressive candidates in your State Legislature, but if Democrats don't have the majority, the ish YOU want passed or protected...isn't going to see the light of day. Natasha sits down with Ronetta Francis, the Democratic candidate for the Arkansas State Senate, representing District 1, to explain why it's all a numbers game. Arkansas may be the deep red south, but there's far more progressives than folks think in the state.  So it's imperative that Dems simply have the numbers to influence policy, and the majority to actually get it pushed through.  It's only a red state as long as you allow Republicans to vote in their candidates more than you vote in yours.  If we want to protect Roe v. Wade now that the Supreme Court will likely get rid of it, vote in STATE legislators like Ronetta Francis who will make laws to STILL protect it in Arkansas. What else does Arkansas need?  What we ALL need.  Rent relief, gender wage gap closure, black unemployment gap closed, greener environment, and how all of these things affect health and wellness - one of her top priorities for a state whose incumbent state Senator says "It's not the government's job to solve problems." The employment attorney and senior Ethics and Compliance executive with decades of experience explains why women - esp. black women - are the cheat code to getting ish done in politics. (Hint: We think about EVERYTHING and EVERYONE, not just ourselves, to create the best policies.) SHARE HER PAGE & SPREAD THE WORD.  VOTE BY NOVEMBER 3rd! https://ronettafrancis.org/ https://www.facebook.com/RonettaForArkansas
