Since 1981, Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc. (RMM), a nonprofit organization, has stood proudly with rural and migrant communities throughout New York State. We act to overcome the prejudices and poverty that degrade and debilitate people within rural New York by building communities that celebrate diversity, achieve true mutuality and fight for dignity and opportunity for all. We work with rural leaders, both young and older, who are committed to equality and cooperative opportunity, especially within agricultural systems. We also support people in faith, labor and university communities who seek to stand with rural leaders as allies. To learn more about RMM, visit ruralmigrantministry.org.
