The 2016 Election Results rendered the growing divide between rural and urban voters explicit with troubling implications for the health of our political system. Join us for a discussion where you will hear from participants in new research from the Groundswell Fund which studied integrated voter engagement strategies in rural areas. With a focus on West Virginia and Alaska, you will learn more about what effective rural engagement may look like, how philanthropy can provide the space for grantees to succeed in this challenging environment, and hear from colleagues around their perspectives on engaging rural voters.

Moderated by Esperanza Tervalon-Garrett, Groundswell Fund [bio]
