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 multiple days of programming that feature experts and poets, civic leaders and culture-bearers.
This is a moment to reevaluate how we perceive our neighbors and our relationships, to tend to one another in ways that unite rather than divide. Persistent inequities and damaging rhetoric have pushed us apart and stifled what we could achieve together. Inaugural poet, Amanda Gorman, reminded us that “being American is more than a pride we inherit. It’s the past we step into and how we repair it.” The work of the moment is to repair the breach, to move national dialogue from narratives of us and them to narratives of we and ours.
Join Rural Assembly Everywhere to claim the moment and participate in this effort.
Rural Assembly Everywhere is a virtual festival designed to inform, entertain, inspire, and demonstrate how we belong to each other. View previous speakers from Rural Assembly Everywhere last October.
