Registration is now open for our 2nd annual Bridge Alliance Member Summit! (October 29th, 2019 in College Park MD.) We are excited to celebrate this opportunity to gather Bridge Alliance members and those dedicated to revitalizing America through collaboration. Attendance is free for all members and non-members will be asked for a nominal fee to cover banquet costs.
During the Bridge Alliance Member Summit in October of 2018, there were many discussions centered on the fact that the democracy field is currently a largely white, older and progressive-leaning field, and that people of color, conservative thinkers, youth and the LGBTQI community are underrepresented.
The Bridge Alliance immediately addressed this problem as an important component of our 2019 strategic plan. We created the Diversity and Opportunity task force to study the problem and establish a process for ensuring that the democracy field becomes genuinely diverse and representative of the country as a whole.
Diversity and Opportunity (meaning diversity with regard to race/ethnicity, sex/gender, social identity, religion, ideology and age) will be the focus of the October 29,2019 Summit and for the Bridge Alliance and the cross partisan movement to be more impactful as we plan for 2020 and beyond. We MUST provide a room of diverse perspectives.
Again, we are grateful to BA member National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC), for providing the space for our annual meeting, in conjunction with their own event. We hope you will be available to attend both events. Registration is available here for NCoC’s event. Bridge Alliance Members who use the discount code BRIDGE will receive $50 off on tickets.
