The Sustainable Rural Communities Project seeks to merge many of our organization’s longstanding direct services and advocacy issues into an approach that addresses the systemic causes of our communities’ poverty, poor health and degraded environment.  The project has advocates working together on a coordinated local, regional, and statewide strategy that is crafting systemic solutions around healthcare for all, environmental justice issues (land use, unmet transit needs, water quality), fostering more accountable and inclusive governance, and directing financial resources that address the priorities of the SRCP to rural and disadvantaged communities.
