Blue Tent Recommends RDI

On the heels of a New York Times/Sienna poll and last week’s election results, Blue Tent notes that voters are deeply concerned about the economy. Blue Tent encourages donors to support Rural Democracy Initiative and other organizations that are creating a shared vision for an economy that works for everyone.

I’m thinking of a group like the Rural Democracy Initiative, which created the Winning Jobs Narrative, a powerful tested framework for talking about work and opportunity in ways that resonate with voters. RDI is also advancing a bold rural policy agenda and promoting the historic investments that the Biden administration is making in rural America, working with community-based groups to spread the word. These efforts are part of a broader push by organizations on the left to speak to, and deliver for, rural communities who feel left behind.
