It's always nice to accomplish something (e.g., creating a blog) on the last day of the year. For many observers of developments in the United States, 2017 was a year when significant differences between urban and rural communities became more apparent. It was also a year when efforts to address some of those differences became more intentional.
We intend to use this blog to explore social, economic, and political divisions between urban and rural communities, as well as opportunities to bridge those divides. As we move into 2018, we look forward to hearing about your experiences, perspectives, and ideas.
