Friend -

Bridge Alliance recently received quarterly updates from our Bridge Action(formerly Collective Impact) Grantees. We are excited to share with you excerpts from three of ten updates. 

Leading with Civility - Improving relationships within state legislatures for better policy decisions. "There is so much interest, we're looking forward to preparing future projects, and maintaining our connection and partnership with each other." 

Utah Community Partners - Preserve and cultivate deeper levels of "civic ecosystem" in Utah by training facilitators to help spark and organize diverse forms of productive sociopolitical dialogue across the state. "We are so grateful for the support of the Bridge Alliance Collective Impact Fund, without which this project would likely not be possible; and in addition to the work we're doing on the ground, we're happy to be learning from this pilot initiative as we are planning other similar projects in states across the US. Thank you for this opportunity to make a difference!"
Bridging Divides - Better informing people of government procedures, successes and roadblocks, by creating, testing and distributing a new series of radio, TV and webcasts. "A major success of the project has been securing Stephanie Sy, a 17-year veteran of ABC news, Al Jazeera and Yahoo News, as the anchor. She is incredibly knowledgeable, with a breadth of experience on the local, national and international media stage. Apart from her broadcasting duties, she has agreed to help edit and mold the scripts as necessary, ensuring a high-quality product."  

We are proud of the work that is being done through our grant program and look forward to seeing and sharing next quarters updates. 

Bridge Alliance would also like to announce our two newest members - Common Good and The Center for Technology and Civic Life!
