We Are Rural: Annual Report 2013

The Center for Rural Affairs turned 40 years old this year. Think about that for a minute. When Marty Strange and Don Ralston first threw open the doors 40 years ago, it was anyone’s guess if the scrappy organization on main street in a town of 800 would make it for one year.

It didn’t take long before rural people were flocking in from across the state.

Now, 40 years later, you will read about the rural America you are helping create. It is a unique set of work tied together by a belief that rural people, acting together in their own community and banding together across communities, can shape the future of small towns and the countryside.

It is work we do together with you.
