Rural Power Labs, formed in fall 2021, is a rurally-focused experimental support program incubated at Movement Labs that partners with State and Local Democratic Parties to provide an additional layer of resources, training, and support for rural local Democratic Parties. In 2021, we successfully piloted our program in KS, MT, VA, and WI with 70+ rural Democratic county parties and were well received and rated by county chairs and members.
We envision helping rural Democrats come out of isolation and connect with other rural Democrats locally and nationally to organize together to make rural Democrats more visible and brought together. We will localize national issues to make it real what national Democrats are doing to deliver. Our goal is to improve the Democratic brand in rural areas.
