Dakota Rural Action

BY TONY HELLAND
@ VOL 19 ON SEP 02, 2016

In "Dakota Rural Action" from PechaKucha Sioux Falls Vol.19, SD Tony Helland's love of the state and region runs deep. He grew up loving the outdoors, bicycling, and creating and performing music. Over the past two years Tony has expanded his interests toward the environment, sustainable energy, and civic engagement. These interests were brought to the fore after joining with Dakota Rural Action. Since then he has been fortunate to travel all across region, meeting new friends and learning the pressing issues they face. Tony’s current areas of engagement include water quality, oil and gas infrastructure, and the state legislature. One thing he’s learned through this is that it is only through building personal relationships and community involvement that positive change will be seen.
