A voice for Rural America
The League of Rural Voters uses grassroots organizing and communications tools to connect with rural voters in pivotal Midwestern states, focusing on issues like economic development, Social Security, immigration, trade and farm policy, health care and education. We work to make sure the voices of rural America continue to be heard. Join us.
We believe in the power of a grassroots approach – strengthening the capacity and capabilities of those with the most at stake. Using culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies and materials, the League of Rural Voters provides information, communications and organizational tools to a growing network of rural advocates. We work together to increase participation and demand accountability in all levels of government by:
Creating public service and earned media campaigns -- to help raise awareness of the policies that have led to current rural economic challenges.
Providing online advocacy tools -- to help turn up the volume on rural issues for the media and our elected officials.
Challenging candidates to take clear positions on farm and rural policy issues. – to allow rural voters to support and elect representatives committed to increased investments in rural education, health care and sustainable economic development.
