In less than two weeks, RuralVote.org is hosting its first-ever National Rural Strategy Summit. We will have progressive political strategists, organizers, activists, candidates and elected officials, strategize how we can effectively organize in rural areas in battleground states ahead of the 2022 election.
The National Strategy Session will be held on Nov. 6 from noon-4 pm ET. Over 100 progressive political strategists, organizers, activists, candidates and elected officials are gathering for a virtual strategy session hosted by J.D. Scholten of RuralVote.org. Join us on Saturday November 6, 2021 to discuss strategies for engaging rural voters ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
The four-hour digital event will elevate locally driven strategies for rebuilding the progressive brand in small towns and rural communities across the country ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
If there’s one complaint I hear over and over again, it’s that the Democratic party doesn’t support rural organizing enough. Rural campaigns are often overlooked and underfunded. We must change the game on the ground if we want to win statewide races in 2022 and expand the Democratic Senate majority.
That’s why I’m selling my beloved campaign RV the Sioux City Sue and using the proceeds to give out grants to local rural organizations. We need to support groups that are working to build the progressive brand and improve Democratic performance outside major metro areas, especially in battleground states and districts.
We’ll be announcing the winners of the Sioux City Sue Legacy grants soon so the rural organizing groups can hit the ground running in 2022. We’re not waiting for the Democratic Party, we must start organizing in rural areas NOW.
