OVERCOMING DIVISION-BASED POLITICS
A RURALORGANIZING.ORG GUIDE FOR COMMON GROUND CONVERSATIONS
RURAL AND PROGRESSIVE?
IT'S MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK
We are Organizers Activists Citizens fighting for our hometowns and rural communities.
We are fighting for a rural America that is empowered, thriving, and equitable. We are guided by our belief that local people are the most capable of solving their own problems.
We have a right to our roots. No one should have to leave their hometown in search of a good job with decent pay.
Justice and Equality
We believe in governance that protects the rights of all community members regardless of gender, race, color, creed, sexual orientation, or national origin.
Rural people and small town folks deserve access to effective and affordable healthcare. No one should have to drive for hours to see the doctor.
Rural should never be a disadvantage. Kids in small towns should get the same quality education as everyone else.
Sustainable Land Management
We are fighting to protect critical habitats and natural resources through smart land management programs and policies.
We believe communities that are accepting of diversity are best positioned to fight rural population loss and thrive in 21st Century.
