Share your story at Everywhere 2023

Learn how to contribute your own video to the next Everywhere virtual event

Do you have a story to share of rural people, communities, or organizations who are building safer and more connected communities? If so, we want to hear about it! 

The Rural Assembly is issuing a call for submissions for video stories and performances from rural people and organizations across the country. These short videos will be shown as part of Rural Assembly Everywhere, a virtual event on June 28th. 

Rural Assembly 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.

Big or small, there are projects and programs, people and movements that are fully alive in rural America. We want to share those stories. 

You’ll find directions and a form below to submit your idea or video.

Share a video for Everywhere

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
