Community-supported research and reporting.

The big picture ... the long view ...

Every voice at the table.

Thank you for your support!


Community support for the nonprofit, nonpartisan Foothills Forum provides research and reporting about Rappahannock County matters.

Foothills Forum is tackling the need for more fact-based, in-depth coverage of the issues we care about in Rappahannock County. We’re a nonprofit, independent group promoting community engagement, research and solutions. We invite every voice to the table.
Why? Because a more informed, engaged community makes better choices and decisions for the long term.
We’ve surveyed the county, asking people like Ellen Adams, above, what they think about our county’s future.  In the coming months we’ll host forums and gather further research, publishing the results via an agreement with Rappahannock Media (The Rappahannock News, Piedmont Virginian magazine and its online sites).
There’s room at the table for every voice.
