Are you organizing for change in rural communities?
Join us on August 24th at 10am PT / 1pm ET for our next virtual discussion, Rural Policy Advocacy & Voice.
Our panel of expert organizers will discuss the impact of federal policy on rural communities and how our members and allies in the rural U.S. can grow our networks, voice, and influence.
Ann Williams Cass, Executive Director of Proyecto Azteca, Rio Grande Valley, South Texas
Earl Tulley, Co-Founder & Vice President of the Board of Directors of Diné CARE, Navajo Nation
Joyce Parker, Community Organizer, Co-Founder & Director of Citizens for a Better Greenville, Mississippi Delta (Moderator)
How can we connect with, engage, and organize individuals and organizations across rural spaces?
How can we build capacity and power to not only influence local and regional policy but engage with and, as necessary, counter federal policy that affects our communities?
How can we negotiate resource limitations and cultural or linguistic barriers to bridge gaps and build effective coalitions in these spaces?
We’ll address these issues and more, including questions from the virtual audience, as we talk strategies, case studies, and success stories for organizing and empowering rural communities.
Have questions you’d like to see addressed by the panel? Send your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
