Rural Urban Bridge Initiative from Anthony Flaccavento

Sierra Forward Town Hall Presents:

Heal the Rural/Urban Divide

“It’s been too long since our country focused on creating policies with and for rural folks. The reality is the majority of our food, fiber and energy comes from the lands in rural communities and yet federal policies have been more focused on urban centers. The Rural New Deal sets forward policies that are already being talked about at coffee shops and rodeos and that need the focus of elected officials at all levels. We can close the divide between urban and rural Americans with policies that create a level playing field for all. That is exactly the focus of the Rural New Deal.”

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

Speaker:  Mr. Anthony Flaccavento, Co-founder of the Rural Urban Bridge Initiative

When:  Oct. 26, 2023 06:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
