Organizing Partners

Bridge Alliance Education Fund provides outreach and public education for a growing movement to transform our political terrain.  We put country before self-interest and provide opportunities for all of us and our  communities to listen empathetically, share generously and work effectively together. 

AllSides delivers technology and services to provide multiple perspectives on news, issues, and topics – and the people behind the ideas because the way society gets its news and information affects the world around us.

Listen First Project encourages conversations that prioritize understanding the other and inspires hope for a stronger society –  one Listen First Pledge and Conversation at a time. LFP strives to mend the frayed fabric of America by bridging divides. The Listen First movement is promoted coast to coast by 50+ organizational members of the Listen First Coalition.

The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation is a network of thousands of innovators who bring people together across divides to discuss, decide, and take action together effectively on today’s toughest issues. We serve as a hub, facilitative leader & clearinghouse for this vital community.

Living Room Conversations enable people to come together through their social networks as friends to engage in a self-guided conversation about an agreed-upon topic. Typically conversations have self-identified co-hosts who hold differing views.
Big Tent Nation is a nonpartisan, nonprofit initiative dedicated to substantially increasing the number of citizens working together to address America’s highest stakes economic challenges.
NICD supports a congress and executive branch capable of working to solve the big issues facing our country, a media that informs and engages our citizens, and demands civil discourse and a government that works in the best interests of the country as a whole.
