Organizers like George Goehl, Director of People’s Action, who is focusing his efforts on white rural America.

I really liked this conversation. I lived in Lee county FL for many years wondering why this county is red despite huge hispanic/black populations. Nobody knocked on my door to inspire me to get involved. If you can flip Lee County to blue you can flip Florida!
