The Daily Yonder + National Rural Assembly = Stronger Rural Voice

The Daily Yonder is home base for folks who care about what’s happening in rural America.  

For years, the Daily Yonder has given us quality journalism and provided an authentic voice for rural communities in the national arena. 

Last month, the Yonder covered the 2015 National Rural Assembly, delivering profiles of participants, news coverage of keynote speakers like U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and special features on the participation of young people at the conference. See full Yonder coverage of the 2015 Assembly here.

Consistently, the Yonder brings us the latest research on a range of topics and tells us exactly how rural is faring in areas like broadband access, climate change, main street economics, philanthropy, and health care: issues that matter to the nation as a whole but REALLY matter to rural people and places.  

We want to keep the Yonder in business so we can continue to do the business of building a more inclusive nation, where everyone matters, no matter your zip code.
