The Southwest Rural Policy Network (SWRPN) has been awarded a grant from the Rural Policy Action Partnership to initiate a project in Rural Digital Advocacy. The grant provides support to rural advocacy groups like the SWRPN to leverage technology and social media tools to strengthen their rural policy work and campaigns.
The SWRPN has proposed to build an online “Rural Southwest Digital Community Center” as a platform to foster collaborative efforts between community-based projects in the rural Southwest. The website will replace their current site, and serve as a repository of shared resources for the rural communities in New Mexico and Arizona.
