On April 16, 2013, NADO and PolicyLink co-hosted the webinar “Addressing Equity and Rural Poverty: The View from the Ground.” The presentation highlighted the opportunities and challenges small towns and rural communities face in combating poverty and promoting inclusive economic development. Presenters discussed efforts being made to incorporate equity – the just and fair inclusion into society where everyone can participate and prosper – into regional and community economic development plans in California and Tennessee.
