With political polarization at a recent high, AllSides highlights stories on efforts to bridge the divide. In large part, this increased rancor is due to media bias, where news organizations rely on a business model that exacerbates partisan tensions. There are countless individuals and organizations that are working to find common ground on issues across the spectrum. Here are a few we work particularly closely with:
Living Room Conversations facilitates discussions among people with different political beliefs and provides a step-by-step guide to having respectful dialogue on an array of contentious issues.
The Bridge Alliance works to improve civic engagement and is composed of a network of more than 80 political organizations.
The Listen First Project promotes civil discourse by encouraging people to listen to those we disagree with. They regularly publish commentary and organize events with political and community leaders from diverse backgrounds that tackle major political issues.
There are many others working to ease polarization and bridge the partisan divide in communities across the country. We at AllSides think that this work could not be more vital.
