Rural Reporting

From 2014 until 2019, Elizabeth Zach was the staff writer at the nonprofit Rural Community Assistance Corporation, based in California. Founded four decades ago upon the principles that guided Cesar Chavez and his farmworker housing movement, RCAC has gradually taken on more causes such as clean water, affordable housing, and economic development. Elizabeth's writing focused on the depth of challenges facing the rural American U.S. West, namely drought, an affordable housing shortage, and both Native American and generational poverty, and illustrated how RCAC addresses each with sustainable solutions.
