How WA Republicans, Democrats are trying to bridge political divides | The Seattle Times

By Nina Shapiro

In this piece from The Seattle Times, reporter Nina Shapiro highlights rewards and challenges as Washingtonians seek to build bridges across partisan divides – starting with how to find people with differing viewpoints who want to engage. Her article mentions the Project for Civic Health and several organizations featured on our Civic Health Efforts in Washington webpage, including Braver Angels and the co-chair of their Washington state chapter, Sue Lani Madsen. The article also highlights Monica Guzmán, a Jackson Leadership Fellow and changemaker, who gave the keynote address at our Civic Health Summit last October.

Mirroring Shapiro’s article, the Project for Civic Health calls attention to ways that Washingtonians are working to understand each other and find common ground.
