From The Conference September 04, 2017

"It was easier for me to get to China than to get back to my hometown."


Urbanization is not just a geographical migration, it is also a cultural one. Erin Malone, Communications Director at Forward Together & Hometown Connect, is one of the millions of people in the US who has fled their rural birthplace in order to pursue a career in a bigger city. In her talk, she explains how our political and social reality is jeopardized when small towns are left in decline, and offers solutions that could create a bridge between both rural and urban environments.
