This last summer, the Bridge Alliance was busy making connections and bringing new organizations on board. We wanted to take a moment to highlight two of our newer members and the powerful work they are doing.
Illinois Humanities works to build dialogue across all sectors of society to examine issues important to democracy in the focus areas of public policy, media & journalism, business, and art. Using the humanities as tools to stimulate discussion, we create experiences across Illinois through programming, events, and grantmaking to engage a diverse public on ideas and issues that matter.
The Institute for Local Government promotes good government at the local level with practical, impartial and easy-to-use resources for California communities. The Institute’s goal is to assist local leaders to govern openly, effectively and ethically, work collaboratively and foster healthy and sustainable communities.
The Bridge Alliance is proud to have new organizations joining our network that all have in common a commitment to working together for collective impact and increasing visibility for all those who want to strengthen the common ground.
