We're fighting for a rural America that is thriving. equitable. empowered.

RuralOrganizing.org is committed to pursuing creativity, equity, and justice at all organizational levels and throughout all programs. We strive for proactive communication, reconciliation, and mutual respect. And we always see the humanity in others.


Who We Are

In small towns and rural communities across the country, authentic relationships are the foundation for community change. Tip O'Neill famously said, “All politics is local,” but we’ve found that rural politics are also personal.

We believe that communities, causes, and candidates must leverage these relationships in order to organize and mobilize rural communities toward enduring and sustainable change.

With smart communications and strategic distributive organizing, we will empower rural progressives and develop, pass, and implement policy platforms needed to rebuild small towns across America.
