Building Rural Power: Coronavirus and Beyond!

There are many ways that the ROP network is actively organizing during Coronavirus. Around the state, rural leaders are creating systems of mutual support to get us through this pandemic and build power toward our long-term vision of dignity and justice for all!

Member groups can access ROP’s Zoom account to host virtual meetings to continue your work, and we have also held multiple online strategy sessions to brainstorm and work together across the state. You can watch or listen to the recordings of the strategy sessions below. You can also check out this list of resources compiled from tools local leaders have shared on these strategy sessions and hundreds of conversations with human dignity groups.
