For decades Democrats nationally have disinvested from rural areas. To defeat right-wing radicalization and remain relevant nationally, Democrats have to improve their brand in rural America. We believe that vibrant, local, rural Democratic parties doing highly visible community service can make that happen. Our goal is to show rural voters that Democrats are their neighbors caring for the less well-off, not coastal elites.
This fall and winter we’ll work with a small number of teams in rural WI, KS, MT and VA to pilot a program remediating the Democratic brand via this grassroots organizing and community service. If you or someone you know lives in one of these states and wants to apply, please download the PDF form application and email firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday August 14th.
