History shows that the challenges fracturing our nation remain beyond the capacity of the two party process to move our nation forward. It is time for our country to heal and put country before party so that we can fulfill the American dream. On a bright note, Bridge Alliance's membership of organizations doing outstanding work keeps growing. We are excited to announce that Cities of Service, Sustained Dialogue Institute, and State Legislative Leaders Foundation have joined us.
Cities of Service is a national nonprofit organization that supports mayors and city chief executives in their efforts to engage local communities and residents, identify challenges, and solve problems together. We work with cities to build city-led, citizen-powered initiatives that target specific needs, achieve long-term and measurable outcomes, improve the quality of life for residents, and build stronger cities.
Sustained Dialogue Institute develops leaders able to transform differences into the strong relationships essential to effective decision-making, democratic governance, and peace. Sustained Dialogue differs from other changemaking processes through its focus on understanding the nature of community relationships, which are often the “problem behind the problem”.
State Legislative Leaders Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to professional development for our nation’s current and future state legislative leaders. Our constituency includes Speakers of the House, Senate Presidents, Majority Leaders, Minority Leaders, and Pro Tempores. And through our Emerging Leaders Program, we offer mentoring to first and second term legislators who have been identified by their peers as future leaders.
