Rural Community Building features Martha Verduzco with Hood River Latino Network in the Columbia River Gorge and Katie Cook with Rural Voices in Gilliam County. From organizing marches and resource fairs to creating publicly accessible childcare, this episode emphasizes a core truth about rural community organizing: breaking isolation by building connections, relationships, and community through organizing is a skill that many of us learn through necessity. If you are interested in connecting with other rural Oregonians who are building community, head to to learn more about Rural Organizing Project (ROP) and how you can get involved.
