Everything Else: Stories From Rural America is an ongoing project exposing and exploring the sustained, intentional disinvestment that continues to create fallout in the lives and spaces of rural Americans. 

This project exists to create sustained visibility by providing space for these people to tell their stories and break down assumptions that divide our nation based on race, class, and geography.

We believe that sharing these personal stories has the power to disrupt attitudes that drive policy and investment, and ultimately effect widespread positive change. 

Everywhere Else: Stories From Rural America, much like our country, is a work in progress. It is our intention to continue to fill this site with the dynamic stories of rural people, families, and communities as they celebrate and struggle in the places they call home.
