A PBS Special, a Name Change, and a special request from a valued member!
Posted by on March 09, 2018 at 5:56 PM
We are excited to inform you of the release of American Creed -- an hour and a half long PBS Special about "the stories of a range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides." Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy are the stars of this film, which features two Bridge Alliance member organizations -- Citizen University and Living Room Conversations. You can read more about the film here, and you can watch the film here.
We would also like to announce that the Centrist Project has changed its name to Unite America. As you may remember, Unite America received a Bridge Action Grant last year (along with Independent Voter Project and Represent.Us) for their collaborative work encouraging independent-minded candidates for office. You can visit their new website at https://www.uniteamerica.org.
Finally, we are pleased to support Clara Nevins, co-founder of Bridge the Divide, who is conducting a research project on media and political polarization. Clara is a high school senior and, as part of her studies, she wants to know how people make political choices according to where they live, what media they read, and with whom they associate. If you could take five minutes to complete Clara's survey, she would be very appreciative.
Thank you for your support,
