Here at RuralOrganizing.org, we are creating a strategic advisory team to help take the organization to the next level. We're looking for seven rural organizers from a diverse set of backgrounds to help make critical decisions and shape the future of our work.
Our strategic advisors will be expected to spend 2 hours a month for the next six months shaping the strategic vision for the organization and identify ways our 12,000 rural progressives can begin to rebuild rural America.
Our vision is for a Rural America that is empowered, thriving, and equitable. We are guided by our belief that voters want a more secure future, desire a more positive political process and more proactive government, and are the most capable of solving their own problems.
We believe there is a gap between rural development and political organizing. Rural community development too often neglects effective political organizing that enacts political change. And, progressive political organizing too often fails to fully engage rural communities.
Our approach is to empower and equip rural communities to collaboratively identify challenges and solutions, develop positive political agendas that prioritize their best interests, and mobilize support for legislation and candidates that will deliver sustainable change in their own communities and across the nation.
If you're fighting for change in your community, we'd love to learn for you. Please apply to be a RuralOrganizing.org Strategic Advisor today.
