The Rural Digital Youth Resiliency Project seeks to advance public understanding of the unique risks that America’s rural youth face online. RDYR assembles different perspectives, research methods, and engaged journalism practices to illuminate these challenges. Topics include: mis/disinformation targeting, exposure to violence, hate and other harmful content, and risks for radicalization to extremist ideologies. We take a collaborative, solutions-oriented approach and seek to build a network of researchers, journalists, technologists, policy makers, and affected community members to ensure diverse perspectives are represented in addressing the societal effects of new technologies on rural communities. RDYR invites research and reporting proposals on these topics – submit form inquiry for more information.
