Mapping Progressive Infrastructure in Rural America

On their website, the Open Society Fellowship writes that they support “individuals who are developing innovative solutions to pressing open society challenges.” Marcy Westerling, a current fellow from the US, is doing so through cartography:

“For her Open Society Fellowship project, Westerling will map progressive infrastructure in rural localities in four states as a means of identifying potential allies for social change. She will use this information as the basis for an ambitious effort to link disparate issues and constituencies through what she calls ‘transformational organizing’.” (From the Open Society Fellowship website.)

Here’s an article Westerling wrote for In These Times, which includes information about her mapping work.
