Save the date: Rural Assembly Everywhere Returns June 28
Learn how to contribute your own video to the next Everywhere virtual event
The Rural Assembly invites you to Rural Assembly Everywhere, a virtual gathering designed by and for rural leaders and their allies, on June 28th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
Everywhere: Toward Safer, More Connected Communities will explore the ways rural people are pushing back against harmful policies and narratives and the steps they are taking to create safer, more connected communities. This Everywhere will feature stories, keynotes, and performances that tell the story of how we celebrate and protect the dignity of our neighbors. We’ll spotlight what it looks like when rural people show up for one another with hands and feet, song and food, and we’ll center rural people who are on the front lines of conversations about overcoming political, economic and social violence that would harm our communities.
How to participate: Registration is free and will open soon. Join the Rural Assembly newsletter now to be the first to know and get updates about the event!
We’re also looking for video contributions to show at Everywhere that illustrate how rural people are responding to some of the biggest challenges of our time, and striving for safer and more connected communities. Learn how to submit below.
Share a video for Everywhere
We are looking for video stories and performances that illustrate how rural people are responding to some of the biggest challenges of our time, and striving for safer and more connected communities.
Big or small, there are projects and programs, people and movements that are fully alive in rural America. We want to share those stories.
What we’re looking for: We are especially interested in how you/your organization address topics and issues that make our communities safer and more connected.
What should the video be like? The submissions can be documentary style, music, poetry, an interview, or just someone talking to the camera about these issues.
It’s OK if the video has been shown elsewhere before.
Please keep the videos under 3 minutes.
Submission deadline: June 5
