“Charting a Path of Rural Progress” features interviews with a few of the rural policy experts and organizers who attended the Rural Policy Action Summit in Omaha, Nebraska, in April 2023, sponsored by the Rural Democracy Initiative. The platform that grew out of that Omaha summit, “A Roadmap for Rural Progress: 2023 Rural Policy Action Report,” details 27 legislative priorities for rural and small town America on which candidates can run—and to which voters can hold their elected leaders accountable.
