Backroads PAC From their website:

"Living in rural America requires some grit, some tenacity, and an understanding in the value of community. Running for public office in rural America takes a tremendous amount of all three. So, our mission is simple: build a community to ensure rural Democrats never travel the path to victory alone."

"Democrats in rural areas have been left behind for decades--lacking in infrastructure, organization, and resources. Our top priority is to help fill that gap by partnering, endorsing and helping to fund Democratic candidates running for Federal office."

People's Action (Rural and Small-Town Organizing) From their website:

"We see the potential that exists in our communities, and it's time for candidates for every level of office to see it too. But a quick campaign stop or scenic rural photo-op is not enough to meet the moment rural communities and small towns face – and neither is promising a return to the pre-pandemic status quo. Rural communities need candidates who will work with us on a new approach, based on our vision for what our communities can be: anchored by thriving small towns with diversified economies, strong safety nets that meet people's needs, a family farm food system, a plan to rapidly transition to a renewable energy future and a jobs guarantee that invests in us to rebuild our communities and take care of each other."

Rural Organizing From their website:

"In small towns and rural communities across the country, authentic relationships are the foundation for community change. Tip O'Neill famously said, "All politics is local," but we've found that rural politics are also personal. We believe that communities, causes, and candidates must leverage these relationships in order to organize and mobilize rural communities toward enduring and sustainable change. With smart communications and strategic distributive organizing, we will empower rural progressives and develop, pass, and implement policy platforms needed to rebuild small towns across America."

Rural Organizing Project From their website:

"Our mission is to strengthen the skills, resources, and vision of primary leadership in local autonomous human dignity groups with a goal of keeping such groups a vibrant source for a just democracy."

United Rural Democrats From their website:

"United Rural Democrats was founded in September 2020 to provide rural Democrats with the support they need to organize effectively. Strong candidates in traditionally "red" parts of our country had not been getting the resources they needed to compete.

United Rural Democrats (URD) is focused on rebuilding Democratic investment in rural political infrastructure. A lot of our rural neighbors are open to the ideas of the Democratic party, but are disengaged by classic party messaging. We seek to combat this, ending rural isolation and building community trust. We continue to work with campaigns and candidates all across the nation in our fight to cut rural America in on the deal."
