ORGANIZATION: Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc.

Image_202205150507

We are a 40 year organization and have so many amazing stories to tell from our past! We want to incorporate these past 40 years into our current efforts and we need YOU to help us do that!

Our home is located on a beautiful 44 acre campus in Cornwall on Hudson, NY where we would station you in our "archives" room to help us digitize and organize our archives. Media types include mostly paper & photo. There is a great app called Tiny Scanner on any mobile phone that you would be asked to download (at no cost!) to help us digitize these memories and have an easy share back with our organization!

It is a mighty task but I am sure you are up for it! Join our team!

About Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc.

Location:

PO Box 475, Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY 12520, US

Mission Statement

Rural & Migrant Ministry, Inc. works for the creation of a just, rural New York State through: Nurturing leadership Standing with the disenfranchised, especially farmworkers and rural workers Changing unjust systems and structures

Description

For us, it’s all about systemic change. Frankly we all get tired dealing with the effects of systemic oppression, we want to be with people who are committed to working for change. This requires persistence and patience, and funders who understand this commitment! Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer organizations able to focus on systemic change

Our focus on Leadership Development. All of our program first and foremost are about nurturing leaders for rural justice, whether they be grass-root leaders or ally leaders. As Lila Watson, and Aboriginal educator/artist said: If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. If you have come here because your liberation is bound up with mine, then stay and we can work together. Our commitment, our leadership is for long term impact.

The Leadership Development thread goes hand in hand with a second thread of Experiential Education (also called Participatory Education). We believe that the best way to develop our leadership is to go out and engage in the world, and then to step back and reflect and analyze, and then go back out and engage. This is an important aspect for our faith members, as one of our Christian members said: "We are interested in living into the Gospel, not preaching it".
