We are excited to announce that the newest member of the Bridge Alliance family is Ballotpedia

If you have never heard of Ballotpedia, we encourage you to check them out. Ballotpedia’s goal is to inform people about politics by providing accurate and objective information about politics at all levels of government. Moreover, they are firmly committed to neutrality. 

The top search bar accurately describes it as the “Encyclopedia of American Politics” -- its seemingly endless database includes information on everything from congressional retirements heading into 2020 to the unsuccessful candidates for local school board elections in Utah. If you need information on a candidate for office, Ballotpedia likely has it.

We also want to congratulate American Promise for putting together an excellent first set of speakers for its National Citizen Leadership Conference, including Manu Meel of BridgeUSA. We look forward to hearing the rest of the lineup, and we encourage you and all our supporters to sign up for The American Promise conference, as well as all the upcoming Bridge Alliance member events happening throughout the nation.

Lastly, we want to congratulate Common Ground Committee for hosting a successful event with former Members of Congress Barney Frank and Chris Shays. Representatives Frank and Shays discussed how to work across the party aisle to better serve the American public. You can see highlights of the event here.

As always, thank you for your support,


Bridge Alliance Education Fund
