What Donors and Partners Are Saying
I feel fortunate that we have such a strong local organization, Rural Action, to work "upstream" for a better future for us and our children.
Lee Gregg, Rural Action Member
One of the keys to building a sustainable society is reconnection - to the land, the forest, the water. Once we change our relationship to these resources, we will be able to change the actions we take on this planet. Rural Action is fighting for this change in Appalachia and NAPRA is fighting for it in Brazil.
Helena Goncalves, Community Solutions Fellow
We live in a vibrant community. We are not without our issues, and I worry about what we are leaving for future generations. I am grateful for the vast work Rural Action does addressing these issues -- improving our economy, ecology, and education.
Cita Strauss, Rural Action Member
Rural Action has helped me see how everything that makes my life worth living is interconnected: Food, People, Nature, and Love.
Brian Cristi, Rural Action Member & Former AmeriCorps
One of the original goals of our farm was to provide education -- I had thought about having a bison workshop here, but it wasn't until the relationship with Rural Action that I was able to make that happen. By working with Rural Action and using their network, advertising, and scheduling, it was really easy for me to have that workshop here.
Carie Starr, Rural Action Member & Owner, Cherokee Valley Bison Ranch
What impressed me the most about Rural Action was how they take a big picture look at all that they get involved in.
John Kotowski, Rural Action Member
It takes a lot of people working together in order to see these kinds of improvements.
