Problem: Since the age of Reagan small-town America has been left behind, trapped in the stronghold of ultra Right-Wing conservative leaders. The lack of any sustaining Democratic representative in rural districts across the country has meant that progressive ideas and values have not had the opportunity to be instilled in these rural communities.
Solution: Rural Progress believes in order for progressive values to flourish in rural communities, you must devote time, energy, and money. That is why our focus is not one, election, but every election. Rural Progress will launch long-term campaigns to spread progressive values in rural communities in order to create lasting, positive, progressive cultural change in small-town America.
