This 2021 calendar illustrates month-by-month the accomplishments you helped us achieve in 2020.
A year in review
Coronavirus defined 2020. Small businesses fought for survival. Community life turned upside down. Families struggled with economic uncertainty.
This year brought the fight for social and economic justice into renewed focus.
Thanks to your support, the Center transformed our work to meet the needs of rural people and rural places. We took on new fights, delivered services in new ways, and used new tools to keep long-term work moving forward.
It wasn’t an easy year. I want to thank you for being there for rural America’s small business owners, farmers, and communities when it mattered.
As we emerge from 2020, our central focus must be on pulling together to create a more resilient future for our planet, for our communities, and for all people who call rural America home.
