On this episode, we hear from Burns Strider. Burns has spent the last several years working at the intersection of faith, politics, and rural community change. A native of rural Mississippi, Burns has served as a senior advisor to both Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

In this recording, which was made during the RuralOrganizing.org community call on January 11 2017, Burns discusses the challenges rural progressive face in reaching out to both their rural neighbors and the greater progressive community -- especially when it comes to the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare).
