Let's ensure all Americans CAN + DO VOTE!
Rural voters matter + their votes can decide elections.
Joe Biden wouldn’t have won without rural support. The increase in Biden’s rural vote share in 2020 exceeded his margin of victory in the key states of GA, AZ, WI and PA. Rural voters are also more diverse and persuadable than stereotypes—and share many policy concerns with progressives. The problem is that we have not been reaching them effectively. Making inroads with rural voters can help us build a stronger progressive base in key states for 2022 and beyond.
To achieve that goal, Force Multiplier is supporting the
Rural Victory Fund
at the Rural Democracy Initiative (RDI).
RDI is a funding collaborative that supports permanent progressive organizing and communications infrastructure in rural areas, small towns, and small cities across the country. The Rural Victory Fund is their 501c4 advocacy and action fund.
Your contribution to The Force Multiplier Rural Victory Fund Portfolio supports the work of 12 groups working in the 2022 Senate battleground states of GA, NC, PA, AZ and WI. These groups promote progressive policies and candidates, fight for fair elections, and develop creative communication strategies to spread a local, progressive message to counter the socially divisive narrative coming from right-wing social media, talk radio, and cable news.
The groups include:
Wisconsin: Wisconsin Farmers Union, Progress North
Georgia: Black Male Voter Project, Faith in Public Life
North Carolina: Down Home North Carolina, Poder
Arizona: Rural Arizona Action, Chispa
Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania Stands Up, PA United
Multi State: GALvanize, 1000 Women Strong
