The Indivisible National Rural Voices Virtual Summit seeks to bring together rural Indivisible groups and rural organizers across the country for a weekend of celebration, self-care, and rural power building in anticipation of the November election. Hear from rural powerhouses such as People’s Action, RuralOrganzing.org and Indivisible’s own raucous rural caucus about the power of the rural electorate, how to build your rural coalitions, and how to fight misinformation in the time of COVID19. The Summit will feature Trae Crowder, rural advocate and internationally renowned comedian, as the plenary speaker!

Featured organizations include: People’s Action, RuralOrganizing.org, American Federation of Teachers, Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and Family Farm Action.
