Small Towns Rising

I firmly believe the future of this country won’t be determined by residents of Boston or other urban areas of the Northeast. Rather, it’ll be settled in Rust Belt cities and in small towns across America. To a large degree, they’re the ones who feel most marginalized by political parties and most let down by economic institutions that are supposed to benefit everyone. I’d like nothing better than to help those areas, both in terms of economic development and finding a political voice.

Today, I supported a Kickstarter project called “Small Towns Rising.” An activist is working to create a resistance strategy: “People of all political affiliations and levels of experience are fighting back, working from a place of love toward an inclusive society that honors our diverse communities.” So this project will lead to toolkits and trainings for groups of people new to organizing and activism, written specifically for small town residents.
