One Country Project Hosts Second Rural Progress Summit
Speakers and Panelists will Discuss Major Political and Economic Issues in Rural America

WASHINGTON, D.C. Today, One Country Project (OCP) announced the second Rural Progress Summit, which will take place virtually from June 7-9, 2023.

The political and demographic evolution of rural America continues to play a key role in deciding who controls the agenda in Washington. The One Country Project’s Rural Progress Summit offers an opportunity to bring together political leaders, issue experts, and rural advocates to discuss the policies and issues that are important to rural communities and how those priorities can be elevated both on Capitol Hill and the campaign trail.

“Over the last decade, we’ve seen the important role rural America plays in determining who controls the agenda at the national, state, and local levels,” said OCP founder Senator Heidi Heitkamp. “We’re hosting the second Rural Progress Summit to provide a forum for stakeholders across the country to discuss policy priorities for those who live in America’s small towns. From providing better rural health care to preserving and promoting democracy, this year’s Farm Bill, and examining the future of media in rural communities, the Rural Progress Summit promises to have the conversations that will outline the challenges and opportunities facing rural Americans today.”

The three-day conference will be hosted by the One Country Board of Directors, which includes former North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp, former Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy, Alabama House Minority Leader Anthony Daniels, North Carolina State Representative Ashton Clemmons, Iowa State Senator J.D. Scholten, and Wisconsin Secretary of State Sarah Godlewski.

The conference will highlight key issue areas of rural health care, affordable housing crisis in rural America, keeping American democracy safe, the next Farm Bill, and much more. Speakers and panelists for the conference include:
