We Aren’t Alone: Rural Islands Connect on FolkU

This Friday on Folk U Radio at 1 p.m. host Manda Aufochs Gillespie speaks with the Rural Islands Economic Partnership about how rural islanders and rural island based businesses can support, share, and thrive together.

The Rural Islands Economic Partnership grew out of a recognition that while each Salish Sea island has its own unique community and culture, all islands share many common experiences and needs. Before the RIEP, there was no formal channel for island voices to communicate, plan, advocate. Learn more about this Partnership from Francine Carlin, board chair and about their signature gathering the Rural Island Economic Partnership Forum from Mitch Miyagawa.

Individuals, businesses, self-employed peoples, and organizations were encouraged to participate in this year’s RIEP Forum.
