Think rural America doesn't care about the climate? Think again.

Voices for Rural Resilience is an organization that spurs collaboration amongst rural farmers on addressing issues of climate change. Anna Claussen, the founder, says that there are misconceptions of rural America and that a space is needed for people to have these conversations with those who disagree with them. The group identifies local issues and solutions to those issues, and they present them to local, state, and national policymakers. Participants also testify to the power of the conversations and learning new things.
