Executive Director Sarah Jaynes joined Anthony Flaccavento from the Rural Urban Bridge Initiative on the Great Battlefield podcast to discuss rural political trends, highlighting Rural Democracy Initiative's support in building multi-racial, cross-generational coalitions throughout the country.

Sarah and Anthony underscored the promise of rural America, intrinsic, for instance, in the close ties among community members that enable effective organizing. Highlighting small-town assets like these is central to the RDI's efforts to encourage and celebrate the dignity of rural Americans.

"When you increase investment is when you're seeing those kind of unlikely alliances and really positive results," said Sarah.
