For more than 40 years, the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation has worked to make a difference by helping to build and sustain the organizations that serve and strengthen Arkansas.

Organizers and Advocates are heroes. Every great hero has a story to tell. If you were not at our "Stories that Change Hearts, Minds, and Policies" Story Slam, you definitely missed out: we heard about challenge, triumph, great personal cost, and outright determination to love and serve Arkansas. 

Experience the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service's recording of our "Stories that Change Hearts, Minds, and Policies" Story Slam.
