"Addressing poverty can in part be done at the local level, but the bigger question is what will it take to build a broader base of constituent interest to win? The constituent base to win and glued together is at the regional level—aligning local and county programs and budgets in a regional context that can also impact and inform legislative action at the state level. That is why we need Rise Together."
