Welcome to Ruurbanpoor. If you’re poor then you may be reading this at the library or from a dialup connection. Maybe you’re traveling faster from a school or work connection. Maybe you don’t care that this blog exists but your well being depends on neighbors, community leaders, and national politicians understanding your needs.
Your voice isn’t often heard. Your needs often go unmet. What you experience isn’t fully understood by people with the advantages of finanacial means. That’s too many negatives in life. Let’s turn up the volume, turn around the discussion, and explore issues that impact you. This blog is here for discussion and change. You’ll see posts about history, studies, statements and policies that other people make but I hope the driving voice in this blog is your voice and your experience living in America’s cities.
