Welcome to season 2 of the INTERCONNECTED conversation series hosted by the Center for Rural Policy & Development and the Citizens League.
Wherever you live, you have undoubtedly encountered the term “Urban/Rural Divide” that describes a divisive narrative in policy and politics based on geographic differences. In reality, we all want similar things – good healthcare and education, for example – but the solutions often look different based on where you live. How can we build understanding between these communities?
On Thursday, February 24, 2022 we had a candid conversation exploring shared challenges and opportunities in both rural and urban areas.
Kate Cimino – Executive Director, Citizens League
Benya Kraus – Executive Director and Co-Founder of Lead for MN
Julie Tesch – President & CEO, Center for Rural Policy & Development
