Arizona Rural Policy Forum Inspires Collaboration

Contributed by Erica Pederson, Communications Director with Local First Arizona.

The forum connects rural economic development specialists, nonprofits, community leaders, business owners, and other folks interested in sustaining small towns and rural communities.
