Annual Rural Caucus & Strategy Session


Looking for more information on the Rural Caucus & Strategy Session and Rural Organizing Institute? Ready to register? You’re in the right place!

The Rural Caucus and Strategy Session is the biggest day of the year for ROP – it is when the entire statewide network of rural organizers and community leaders come together to share stories and skills, build relationships and analysis, and advance plans to strengthen the movement for democracy and justice in rural and small town Oregon.  

The Rural Caucus & Strategy Session began in the early 1990s and continued as an annual tradition because it serves as a space for leaders to reflect on our work over the last year, share our lessons learned, and build collective next steps. Every Rural Caucus & Strategy Session features think tanks on topics that reflect on our moment in time, the issues impacting rural and small town Oregon, and how to continue to build our long-term movement for justice and human dignity. For more details about previous Caucuses, check out links to summaries below.
