Civic Life Lunch – Rural Organizing: Fighting for Change in Trump Country

Monday, October 5 | 12 PM ET | Virtual Event 

Join Tisch College for a conversation with Matt Hildreth, the Executive Director of RuralOrganizing.org, a national organization working for progressive change in rural America. Hildreth grew up on a small farm in eastern South Dakota and is a graduate of Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota where he studied Philosophy and Communications. He earned a master’s degree in Strategic Communication from the University of Iowa and holds an Executive Education Certificate from Harvard University’s Leadership, Organizing and Action program. For nearly a decade, Hildreth’s work has focused on leveraging digital technologies to motivate key constituencies toward greater civic engagement on issues relating to migration and social cohesion. Prior to RuralOrganizing.org, he served as the Digital Director, Political Director, and Director of New Initiatives at America’s Voice where he led a team dedicated to fighting white nationalism and white supremacy online, offline, and in politics. And before that, Hildreth spent three years as the Interactive Media Producer for Sojourners — the largest network of progressive Christians in America — where he developed innovative techniques for engaging online constituents.

This event is sponsored by Tisch College, JumboVote, and the Political Science Department.
