Collective Impact PodCast


ABCD and Rural Communities


In this episode, we’re diving into the topic of what does it mean to do collective impact work in more rural areas. Collective Impact Forum executive director Jennifer Splansky Juster chats with Deb Halliday of Halliday and Associates about what can be helpful to consider when working in a cross-sector collaborative that supports rural communities.

Rural America makes up 90 percent of the country but holds less than 20 percent of the population, and those numbers continue to decline. Yesterday we looked at a book putting forth the argument that cities make us better, happier and healthier. But what about the argument for living in the country?

Pod Cast - https://www.peoplesworld.org/article/to-see-each-other-peoples-action-podcast-challenges-rural-americas-stereotypes/

For decades, progressive and even leftist, organizers have ignored small town, rural and “red” areas. They have given them up, and their people, too, as lost causes, those too far gone, backwards, politically insignificant—the “deplorables,” one might say. This has been the trend for nearly 70 years in the post-World War II U.S. Organizers have abandoned areas where, generations ago, some of their strongest supporters led powerful movements.

A new podcast from People’s Action addresses this issue head-on.

Some hopeful news...

After generations of disinvestment, rural America might be the most innovative place in the U.S.



Rural leaders, governments, and philanthropic funders who aren’t afraid to break with long-standing assumptions about the inevitability of rural decline can leverage the potential, talent, and innovative spirit of rural America to build the new Heartland.
