RAZE's mission is to educate, advocate and coordinate in rural communities so they may gain access to civic education, engagement opportunities and voter registration. Rural Arizona Engagement is an influential power in advancing progressive values and policies for the betterment of all its communities. Like the desert we inhabit, Southern Rural Arizona reflects the dichotomy of beauty and bitterness. A sprawling area that includes both isolation and fellowship, natives and newcomers, growth and decline, our communities are hungry for leadership with the ability to navigate our unique duality. Rural Arizona Engagement believes the nuance and knowledge necessary to face and address our issues will come directly from within our communities. We are the solution to the challenges we face.
