Rural Assembly Everywhere returns April 20 & 21, to mark time together, to wrestle with questions about how we build a nation that serves all of us, and to respond to calls for unity and repair. Once again, we invite rural advocates and the rural-curious, listeners and leaders, neighbors and admirers, to participate in programming that features experts and poets, civic leaders and culture-bearers. Rural Assembly Everywhere will feature keynote speakers, performers, and panel discussions from 2 to 4 p.m. ET; breakout sessions from 5 to 6:30 p.m. ET, and Happy Hours at 7 p.m. ET each day. View the schedule.

Throughout the pandemic, communities looked to the local and federal government for support in meeting their everyday needs. Although disproportionately affected, many Tribal Nations across the country took the response upon themselves, successfully staving off and addressing the pandemic, providing food, words of support and other necessities for those living in remote areas, often with limited supplies at their local grocery stores or gas stations. Learn about Tribal successes in protecting, providing and paving a path forward for their people in this challenging time.
