‘We Are Here’: Voices of the Rural Assembly

The Rural Assembly is committed to amplifying voices of rural agents of change, who are working to build a more equitable, inclusive, and thriving rural America. Now more than ever, we need to listen to the voices of people of color, women, immigrants, young people, and the LGBTQ community for truth and guidance. about how to heal and repair what is broken.

We are grateful to Anita Earles, Ruby Sales, Diana Oestreich, Jackie Shelton Green, Prairie Rose Seminole, Magaly Licolli, for sharing their voices at the 2018 Rural Assembly and the 2019 Rural Women’s Summit.

VIDEO: Eliza Blue performs, shares a look inside her life on the prairie ​

Eliza Blue is a shepherd, writer, and folk singer who lives on a ranch in South Dakota with her husband and two children. The ranch has been in her husband’s family for five generations, but Eliza took a more circuitous route to South Dakota, growing up and living in cities before what she thought was a sabbatical from city life became a life on the prairie. At Rural Assembly Everywhere, Eliza shared both a performance and a glimpse into her favorite place.
